Laffa is one of those foods that Jewish people seem to appreciate more than most other people. One reason is the annual celebration of the Passover has the people going for weeks without leavened bread. The Passover is considered to be the most important religious holiday of the Jewish faith. Being able to have laffa, which is similar to pita bread, but is thicker and chewier, is welcomed on the first day following the Passover. There is nothing like fresh bread coming out of the oven with the smell of yeast permeating the air.
In preparing laffa, it is one of the most versatile and easiest foods to cook. It can be cooked in a normal frying pan, a wok, or on a griddle. What is even easier is making the dough! Many people do not realize that making laffa is easy; all you may want to do is change the amount of flour you use to make the result as chewy and thick as you would like. If there is any left over after you are done enjoying it you can wrap it up and put it in the freezer. It is just as good the day after.
Because laffa is a very versatile type of bread, you can do amazing things with it. It is especially good right after it comes out of the pan. You can use it as a wrap or as the basis for a more traditional sandwich depending on what you are comfortable with. More traditional Israeli combinations include falafel, chicken breast, ground beef or lamb, and salmon.
