Traditionally, on St. Sargis day, after fasting and not drinking water all day, young people eat a piece of salty bread right before bed. The person who brings them water in their dreams is the person they will marry. This recipe is from Armine A., a student at Hartashen Secondary School in Syunik, Armenia.
