Khubz mulawah (Arabic: خبز ملوح), mulawah (Arabic: ملوح), or rashush (Arabic: رشوش) is a Yemeni flatbread that is baked in a traditional tannur in Yemeni cuisine.[3][4][5][6][7] A similar bread, malawach, has been brought to Israel by Yemenite Jews.[8][9][10]

Khubz mulawah is often eaten for breakfast with ghee and honey on weekends.


Both mulawah and Lahoh terms come from the Arabic root (l-w-ḥ) which means the thing that is flat.
