The Lebanese saj

The Lebanese saj

I’m sure that there are more of these throughout the region, but this was my first encounter with a Lebanese saj.

The small word refers to a large convex metal cooking implement which is essentially a rounded griddle. Many cuisines such as Lebanese, Turkish, Azerbaijani and those of other nations in western, central and south Asia use the method to cook a variety of flatbreads.

Saj Time: A Bite of Lebanon on University Avenue, near Weber Street, serves shawarma, kafta and tawouk in a thin, wrap-like flatbread called saj. They make the batter in-house, cook the tortilla-thick bread on the saj and then build your sandwich.

Interesting.
