Mkatra Foutra

Country: Comoros
Course: Bread
Makes: 4-6 breads


  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 15 oz can coconut milk
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Butter
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water with a pinch of flour. Now add the flour and eggs and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add the coconut milk, mixing until you get a smooth dough. Let rise for an hour or so.
  3. Separate the dough into balls and flatten them with the palm of your hand (you may need to put a little flour on your hands since this is a sticky dough). Melt a little bit of butter into a skillet and add the flattened dough. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  4. When golden, turn over and cook until that side is golden, too. Remove from heat and lightly butter.
