All districts of Artsakh presented their version of bread or flat cakes with greens, so-called "Zhngyalov hats".

What is it?
All the greenery that grows on the territory of Artsakh is collected, finely chopped, a small amount of vegetable oil and spices are added there too, and all this is baked in a thin dough on the heat pan. It turns out matchless pies with greenery in the dough. And how many vitamins! You  cannot count! The mountain air itself is felt when you taste this delicious dish!

"Bread with greens" or "Zhangialov hats" has its own history and roots in the nineteenth century.
The first written references to it were found in Artsakh. And now, from generation to generation, the inhabitants of these places have perfected the recipe for cooking this dish, and today Zhngyalov hats can be considered one of the visiting cards of the country.
