Fetira is one of my favorite breakfast ever. It can also be a snack or a Sunday brunch. Once again I give my thanks to my friend Maky, who showed me the recipe. I have made it as simple as possible, illustrated with a step by step photo.


If you want a variety, beat an egg and after you cook the fetira on one side turn it over spread it with a spoon of beaten egg after two minutes flip it again to cook the egg. You have got your carbohydrate and your protein too.





  • 200g(1 and 1/4 cups) white flour ( some more for dusting)
  • 150ml( 1/2 cup) salted water
  •  Butter(enough to spread over the dough)
  • Sunflower oil (just enough to cover the pan every time you cook the fetira)


  • Maple syrup

yield – 6 to 8 servings


  1. In a big bowl mix the flour and water till you make a dough
  2. Take it out on your working border and stretch it out thinly


3.Picking a little butter with your fingers spread it all over the rolled out pasta


4.Tear the pasta right at the center and fold it towards the outside and make a circle
