Step-by-Step Sabayah (Square)

This is a Step-by-Step guide on how to FOLD sabayah. The following instructions show how to make square sabayah.

Sabayah recipe can be found HERE.

After the dough has rested, knead lightly and form a bowl.

Divide into 8 pieces and roll out to form a square.

Drizzle with oil.

Spread oil evenly over the entire surface.

Fold the top towards the middle.

Fold again.


Roll out until very thin.



........and fold.

Roll out to form a 10 inch square.

Place in a preheated pan. Pan should be on a
low - medium heat.

Oil slightly and flip. Gently rub with a spatula.
I find that doing this separates the layers and
helps it puff up. Cooking on low heat and flipping
it many times will guarantee a very moist and flaky

Drain on a paper towel.


  1. Is there any way you could tell me how much flour that is in grams, and how much water that is in ml??? I'm from Britain! *shy* Allaah yubaarik feeki. =)
