Lamadzho or lahmacun, lagmadzho (Armenian flatbread) is a traditional Armenian dish. Initially Armenian flatbread recipe is a traditional Arabic cuisine, but now it is the national dish, not only in Armenia, but also in Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Syria and Turkey.

In general, Armenian cuisine is a blend of a variety of techniques, methods and traditions that have been passed from year to year and improved, according to trends. There are sophisticated dishes that you can cook only under the strict supervision of experienced chefs, or very easy ones, which is possible to cook for everyone. But here are always the one – an incredible taste and aromatic range.

It is also worth noting that another feature of Armenian cuisine is that different parts of the dishes are cooked separately from each other and after are connected in the final part of preparation.

Armenian flatbread basicly consists of thin crispy flatbreadbread, with minced meat (usually lamb, but there can be many variations), as well as vegetables, tomatoes, pepper and plenty of greenery.
