The first historical mentions of unleavened cakes date back to the era of Ancient Egypt. Then they were made from cereals steamed in boiling water and crushed to a mushy state. Cakes were rolled out of tight cereal dough and baked on hot stones. Later, furnaces began to be used for these purposes. In modern cafes and restaurants of oriental cuisine, you can also see ovens for making lavash, they are called tandoor.

In the East, it is customary to treat lavash with respect. It cannot be cut with a knife and can only be taken with clean hands. A special feature of this bakery product is its long shelf life. Moreover, many housewives mistakenly believe that it should be kept in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. In fact, in such conditions, mold quickly develops on the surface of the cake due to excessive moisture. You need to store unleavened bread in the fresh air. Even if it dries up, to restore its former softness and aroma, it is enough to pour a little water on both sides of it and heat it in the oven, in the oven or in a skillet under the lid.

  • Minced meat or fish;
  • Chicken or quail egg omelets;
  • Meat (beef, pork, etc.) in boiled, fried and baked form;
  • Fish (salted or baked);
  • Mushrooms.
