Lavash

Hey everyone!
Has anyone tried making lavash? The crispy stick type that is had as a cracker with cheese. I like mine with lots os sesame, dipped in hummus. I tried making it from a recipe I found online but didn't get the expected results. They browned unevenly and were quite soft. If I baked it any longer it would burn. But when I rolled it out thick they turned out well. What should I do to make it thin and crisp?

Thanks

The lavash is not always thin. Like armenians make it some what thick, oh, about an inch or so, that is like 2.5 - 3 sanitimeters. Also if it cooked unevenly then it is the oven problem. You may want to try to turn it around couple of times during cooking. i love lavash, never made atempt to make one. The real lavash must be made in real clay or brick oven, like the pizza oven. Hm, maybe i should try to make it, I do make pizza at home after all. Good luck.

Hi Shaheen, I have a flatbread recipe that sounds like the texture you are looking for. As Charlie stated the lavash can have many different textures the one I have tried was also slightly puffy and soft.

I will dig out the recipe and send it to you as a Private Message.

A recipe can't be copyrighted; a delineated list of ingredients and steps. The 'presentation' of a recipe can be; specific descripitve or artististic langauage associated with the recipe.

Hi Charlie I did. Let me know if you want it too. I can send you a Private message. It's a recipe I got from someone who attended Culinary Institute of America. I have 3 or 4 recipes that were handed to my aunt by the individual and these are ones that were aired on Baking with Julia by some of the top chefs of the world. I treasure these recipes and I have memorized the Challah recipe which comes out fantastic everytime.

I don't want to publish it here with changes (takes too much time) but I can send it to you if you'd like.
