Week 17: Lavash Chips
As an expression of Armenian culture, Lavash was put on the list of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage.
A tradition you will see frequently in Armenian weddings is after the church service, the bride and groom will go back to the groom's house. The groom's mother will be waiting to put pieces of lavash on the shoulders of both the bride and groom.
Usually, the person making Lavash will place the dough against the heated walls of a clay oven.
I wanted to try my take on homemade Lavash, but I remembered when I made pita chips a year or two ago on my blog. I decided to try the same technique on Lavash.
1 1/2 cups whole flour
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup water
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, knead the flour, salt, and water together. Roll into a rectangle that's 1/4-inch thick. Cut strips out of the dough and place them in a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and serve!
