Bored of wraps and naan? Try lavash! This unleavened flat bread is very popular in Armenia, Iran and Turkey. Traditionally, the bread is baked in a tandoor. However, most of us don’t have a tandoor oven, so a regular oven will do just fine.
- 300g plain flour
- 1 teaspoon of caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 150ml of water
- 1 egg white
- 30g butter, melted
- 2 egg whites, beaten
- 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
- Preheat your oven to 200C.
- Get a large bowl. Add flour, sugar and salt. Mix together.
- Add water, 1 egg white, and melted butter. Mix well until a stiff dough is formed.
- Knead the dough until it is smooth (5 minutes or so).
- Divide the dough into 10 balls. Lightly flour a surface. Roll each ball on the floured surface until paper thin.
- Place the dough on an ungreased baking tray. Brush the dough with the remaining egg white and as a finishing touch, sprinkle it with sesame seeds.
- Bake the bread for 10-12 minutes in your oven, until it is browned.
Tip: Forget the sesame seeds and sprinkle dried rosemary and sea salt on top. Yum!
