Ingredients Needed for Spicy Pastry Twists

2 ounces of fresh yeast
⅔ cup warm water
⅔ cup olive oil
1 ½ pounds of flour
2 tablespoons of paprika powder
2 tablespoons of oregano
1 tablespoon mixed spices
1 tablespoon himalayan salt

How to Cook Spicy Pastry Twists

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/175 degrees C.
  2. Put the fresh yeast in a bowl and add the warm water. Stir it with a fork.
  3. Take another bowl and add the flour. Slowly add the yeast mixture while gently stirring the flour. Knead the dough until it has a sticky texture.
  4. Spread some flour on your working surface and add the dough in the middle of it. Knead the dough until firm, smooth, and elastic, for about 5 minutes.
  5. Take a rolling pin and roll out the dough, periodically lifting and turning it. Make it 0.1-inch (2-3 mm) thick.
  6. Use a rolling pin to evenly flatten sheet into a 12-14 inch (30-35 cm) disk.
  7. Sprinkle paprika powder, oregano, spice mix, and Himalayan salt over it. Spread the spices all over with your hands.
  8. Cut the dough into 0.6-inch (1.5 cm) strips.
  9. Catch each strip with your hands, holding it by the edges. Twist the edges in opposite directions. Do this until you use all the dough.
  10. Line a baking tray with a parchment paper. Place the twists in it and bake them for 15 minutes.
  11. Serve the twists warm or cold, with or without a dip.
