    manushag's Note:

    Not exactly the crispy texture of a bread stick, a little more tender. Go to your local Middle Eastern Grocery or health food store for the black seeds (Black Nigella). This is a crucial ingredient for the nutty taste. These are great with coffee or tea for breakfast or a snack. Makes alot and they last forever stored in a large plastic container. Armenians like to cook in groups, so it helps to have a partner with this one!

      Choereg.... Hamov! Manushag, you are my hero! My grandmother and aunts would always make this, and I would always devour it... It's especially good with Fishne, an Armenian cherry drink. The tastes compliment eachother perfectly! I will be making this soon!
