Gerdeh Bakery - گرده پزی

Gerdeh (نان گرده) is one of the traditional breads of Hamadan province which is located in western Iran near Zagros mountain range. In addition to the special dough used for this flat bread, egg  yolks and aromatic vegetables are used for making this bread taste and smell amazing. There are two types of Gerdeh based on how much egg yolks they use: single yolk Gerdeh (گرده یک زرده), and double yolk Gerdeh (گرده دو زرده) .

The bread is cooked in a tanoor (tandoor -تنور)  and then given to the customers hot right out of tanoor. I hope you can all enjoy Gerdeh someday since this is amazing, specially when eaten fresh out of the tanoor.
