malawach -

Malawach or malawah (Hebrew: מלאווח or מלווח) is a fried toast that is a dish of Yemeni Jews.

Through Yemenite Jewish immigration to Israel, the dish becomes a favorite food for Israelis from all backgrounds and country origins, Malawah frozen can be used instead of dough in various recipes.

Malawach has a similarity in presentation, taste and texture with malawax from Somalia where it is usually eaten with honey on the weekend. The dish is also similar to parotta (also known as Kerala paratha) from South India and Lachha paratha from North India, both of which are lined with flat bread famous in Indian cuisine.
