Are you looking for a dish for your arty or want to try something new? Isn't crispy, crunchy lavash crackers with seeds, sauces, and herb spices sprinkled on top sound more fun for a party or new experiment? This platter is ideal for your next celebration! I've discovered that most store-bought lavash crackers are high in additives and manufactured with processed flour, which we try to avoid. These lavash crackers are simple to prepare, vegan and use very little oil while maintaining crispness.
If you are just too lazy to prepare lavash crackers, you can buy them from Joy Products at very affordable prices. You can thank me later for saving you from the extra effort.

Lavash is a thin, unleavened Armenian flatbread that can be soft or crispy when cooked in a tandoor oven. The recipe I'm presenting today is for a crisp, cracker-like variant that's oven-baked and dusted with nigella seeds.

What Is the Best Way to Make Crispy Lavash Crackers?
It's simple; only a few ingredients, and you'll have beautiful, crispy crackers in less than 30 minutes! The key to making them is to roll them out as thin as possible. They'll be chewy if they're too thick. To begin with, make sure the dough isn't too moist - if it is, adds a bit extra flour. A little dusting of flour on your rolling surface and pin will assist in keeping the dough from sticking to the rolling pin or the surface. I prefer to season the wrapped sheet with only a pinch of salt and a generous amount of seeds and herb seasoning. You may also experiment with the seasoning here.
What Is The Best Way To Serve Crackers?
- It's an ideal tea-time snack and a good starter for house gatherings.
- Serve it with tasty dips and hummus.
- Serve with a slice of cheese on a plate.
- Add them to your salad for crunch, or enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee.
- You may smash them and include them in your papdi chaat.
- Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C)/425°F/gas mark 7 @ 220°C (200°C).
- In a mixing bowl, combine 100g (312oz) of ordinary flour, 50g (2oz) of wholemeal flour, and 12 tsp salt.
- Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the middle of the flour.
- Add enough water (about four tablespoons) to make a firm dough, then turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface.
- Divide the dough into two pieces and roll one into a paper-thin circle with a diameter of 18–20 cm (7-8 in).
- Cut them into eight equal wedges and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Repeat with the rest of the dough.
- Sprinkle the seeds on each wedge of dough after softly brushing it with water.
- Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for 5–7 minutes, or until lightly golden and crisp.
- Transfer it to a plate or container to cool.
- Store it for up to 3 weeks in a sealed container to maintain the crunchy and crispiness.
