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.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 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
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C.
  2. Get a large bowl. Add flour, sugar and salt. Mix together.
  3. Add water, 1 egg white, and melted butter. Mix well until a stiff dough is formed.
  4. Knead the dough until it is smooth (5 minutes or so).
  5. Divide the dough into 10 balls. Lightly flour a surface. Roll each ball on the floured surface until paper thin.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
