A quick and simple flatbread called Kesra

1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp anise seeds
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Grease a baking sheet.
To make the flatbread, mix the dry ingredients together with wet ingredients until soft dough has formed.
Divide the dough into balls.
Place the dough balls on floured board, cover and leave for about 30 minutes.
Brush the top with olive oil, prick the top of each kesra with the tines of a fork (poke at random, or make a thoughtful design like a spiral), and sprinkle sesame seeds.
Bake at 200 C for 20-25 minutes or until crusty and brown.
Serve the same day. Best eaten with tagine, vegetables, dips or just plain olive oil. You can also spread it with butter and honey for breakfast.
Variation: Thyme, olives, garlic can also be used as a topping/filling or any herbs and spices of your choice.
