What is lavash?
|Lavash (pronounced "luh-VOSH") is a thin, round Armenian flatbread (sometimes called cracker bread) made from flour, water and salt. It's traditionally cooked in a tandoor-style oven. Popular in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Turkey, it is available in Middle Eastern markets. |
Soft lavash is used to make rolled sandwiches with a variety of fillings, as well as kebabs and pizzas. Dry lavash keeps longer, and can be used like a cracker for hummus or other dips.
