You can buy lavash (sometimes called lavoche) in delis or gourmet food stores but they are a breeze to make yourself and the result is every bit as good, if not better. Lavash are great for entertaining when arranged in a napkin-lined basket alongside a pâté or a bowl of dip, or as a base for a cheese platter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
60g unsalted butter, melted

Method

  1. Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in the poppy and sesame seeds. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, then the milk and melted butter. Slowly incorporate the flour into the liquids to form a dough.
  2. Knead the dough lightly on a floured board, then wrap in plastic wrap and chill for an hour or so.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease baking trays.
  4. Cut the dough into quarters and roll very thinly, one piece at a time, to 40 cm x 10 cm rectangles – it doesn’t matter if you get a few holes. Cut across into serving-sized rectangles or leave in large pieces to break up later, after they are cooked.
  5. Place on the prepared baking trays and bake for 8 minutes or until dry and pale golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool and store in an airtight container.
