-Drain a can of chickpeas and put into the blender/food processor along with about 20% of the drained liquid from the can.
- Mince 1-2 cloves of garlic (depending on how garlicy you like it to taste) and add to chick peas
- Pour in a few tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a dash of lemon juice
- Add more olive oil if you find the consistency is still too thick.
-In a large bowl mix:
4 cups all-purpose flour in a large bowl
2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 Tbs shortening
-Add 1.5 cups of warm water and knead until smooth (add more water if it feels too dry, but not too much so it becomes sticky)
-Divide dough into roughly 8 balls, then using a rolling pin flatten them into circles. Try and make sure they aren't too thick
-Turn the stove to medium heat and use a non-stick frying pan (no oil or anything) to cook the pitas one at a time (this takes about a minute on each side, little browning spots will be visible).
See, pretty easy.
Then you can use a pair of scissors to cut the pita up.
Or you could do like I did earlier in the summer and just make mini-sized pitas:
