    Mirj's Note:

    Spongy lechuch, made of yeast dough, is served with hot soups and with dips. The preparation is simple, and is done in a frying pan rather than an oven. The result is something between a pita and a pancake, which can be dipped in tehina, simply spread with honey, eaten as is or torn up into a hot bone soup. I've always managed to scrounge some off my Yemenite friends, but have grown so addicted to the stuff thought it would be a better idea if I just made it myself. This recipe comes from Ha'aretz.

      I made this a while ago but forgot to review it. Easy to make and great if you need a handy flat bread. Doesn't last long!
