What’s a Lahmajun?
Lahmajun is one of the staple meals of Armenia and it is often described as the Armenian or Middle-Eastern analogue to the Pizza. However, a Lahmajun has a very thin crust, and is topped with a meat sauce topping, usually lamb or beef-based, that is cooked with tomato and Middle Eastern spices..
I got to know about Lahmajun from my mother, who had learned it from Armenian friends. This is so tasteful and much healthier than pizza (considering it does not have all the fat from cheese, etc.) and finally it is so easy to make.
The recipe is included in Part II of my e-book Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!
