Phitti is a type of leavened bread baked by Hunzakut People of Hunza, Northern Areas, Pakistan.

Preparation involves mixing flour with water, salt, butter and yeast. Other ingredients such as milk can be added depending on personal taste. The dough thus prepared is placed in a metallic vessel called a Khimishdon in Burushaski and placed in a hearth which is preheated with a wooden fire. Alternatively, phitti can also be baked in an oven.

Eaten with butter during breakfast, as a snack or light lunch along with a salted cup of tea.
