Lavash is a thin flatbread or Crisp Whole Wheat Crackers,
from the Middle East, specifically from Armenia. These can be made as soft flat breads and use to make wraps and rolls.

I made the crisp version, Lavash crackers and served them with  Ajvar sauce and these can be  stored for days. Enjoy them as an appetizer with a dipping sauce or just nibble with a cuppa.

Serves 4 to 5

1½ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Teaspoon + 1 Teaspoon Black & White Sesame seeds
¾ Teaspoon Salt
¼ Cup Olive Oil
½ Cup water
1 Tablespoon Oregano 

Pre-heat the oven at 180°C. Grease and line a baking tray. Toast the sesame seeds lightly. Keep aside.
Add salt, olive oil and sesame seeds to the flour and 
rub with your fingers to mix well.
Add the water slowly and make a soft pliable dough.
Divide into four.
Roll out really thin, almost see through thin, on a greased silicon mat.
Or on a greased baking paper.
Cut out a circle using a round plate
A perfect circle
Sprinkle a little of black and white sesame seeds
Roll it with rolling pin
so that the sesame seeds and pressed well
then cut into triangles.
Transfer to the greased tray and brush the top with oil.
Bake till golden and crisp about 15-18 minutes. Cool them on a wire rack. 
Then store in an airtight container.
 Served this with Vegan Ajvar Sauce
My Notes 
Can use half whole wheat and half all purpose flour
