K’YALAGYOSH | Armenian Yogurt Soup with Lavash Bread


Rural cooking in Armenia

K’yalagyosh / Քյալագյոշ is an ancient traditional Armenian dish that is made throughout almost all regions of Armenia.  This yogurt soup is also known as Chortandjash / Չորթանճաշ or Kelegyosh / քելեգյոշ in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).  In the old days, villagers used dried strained-yogurt to make this hearty soup and served it to guests early in the morning – with dried lavash bread pieces, green onions or white onion wedges and Vodka.
