Filling: greens – kndzmindzuk, trtnjuk, nettle, simsimok, timtinok, pttapashar, pravu port, chrchrok, ptutkun, tesni, mokhratal (kind of spinach), flax leaves, grapes leaves, dill, coriander, mint, beet tops, aveluk, onions. The greens should be cut into tiny pieces and covered with a towel.

Dough: flour, salt. The dough should be stiff but soft and left for half an hour in a warm place.

Preparation: divide the dough into small round pieces with a diameter of about 5cm. Roll each out (as for lavash), adding salt, pepper and oil (about two spoons) to the cut greens, and then put the mix on the flat, leaving about 1-1.5cm from the edges and sticking them together.

Press the flat gently and put in a hot sadzha (cast-iron roaster). Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
