Lavash is a crisp bread resembling the Indian khakra. It is made with Maida and topped with roasted sesame seeds and poppy seeds.
- Combine the yeast and sugar with ½ cup of warm water in a bowl. Cover and keep aside till it becomes frothy. (approx. 10 minutes. )
- Sift the flour. Make a well in the centre and add the yeast and sugar mixture and enough water to make a soft dough. This will take about 7 minutes.
- Keep the dough for 30 minutes under a wet cloth till it doubles in volume.
- Divide the dough into 5 equal portions and roll each portion into a circle of 150 mm. (6") diameter. Cut each circle into 5 equal triangles. Repeat with the remaining portions to make 20 more triangles.
- Brush each triangle with a little oil and sprinkle some sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top.
- Arrange these triangles on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 10 minutes or till the chips turn golden brown.
