Podpłomyki ~ Armenian Flatbread

Podpłomyki is an Armenian Flatbread often made without yeast and the simplest flatbread you can make. These are referred as Ormiańskie podpłomyki and can be made on the open fireplaces.

In the ancient Slavic Societies, these Podpłomyk was a common food made on stones heated up in a fire. Sometimes in its history, it was made on open fireplaces when they couldn’t afford an enclosed stove. Sometimes these bread are often made to test the baker’s oven temperature before the first batch of bread was made.

Anyway, I had fun reading up on this flatbread as I came to know that even though it was originally meant to serve as a bread on the side, often eaten with honey or “konfitury” (a kind of jam), the newest adaptations have been to top it with various toppings and enjoy.  So that’s what I did. I added some onions, spices, mozzarella and baked it.

As I had mentioned, my original pick for this letter was Piadina, and only after making it did I realise that I have already posted. I was really in a fix to find another one when I become lucky and came across this flatbread that’s was quite easy to make.

Finally Podpłomyki was my choice in the A to Z International Flatbreads. If you are interested to know what’s P for Street Food, Check my other space.
