Middle Eastern Markouk Thin Saj Lavash BreadThis Lavash thin bread, also known as "Markouk", is made using a "saj". Imagine flipping a wok upside down with burning wood underneath and laying thin dough atop for only a few seconds leaving the bread golden brown on both sides. This traditional homemade bread is as authentic as they come and you will still find grand mothers making this bread at home on a saj or saaj oven.
This bread goes by many names such as saj bread, shrak bread, arabic thin bread and lavash bread. Our Markouk is baked fresh daily and is made with 75 percent wheat flour. Markouk made with 100 percent wheat flour turns out chewy and not very appetizing. Many people also call it Lebanese bread but its made all over the Middle East.Due to the highly sensitive nature of this product we only guarantee this item if shipped next day air, otherwise customer must assume full responsibility for spoilage. Next day air is only available by calling your order in.
