Baking fateer bread (flatbread) is among the old traditions still practiced in Arak, central Iran. To celebrate the Persian New Year Norouz, friends and family usually gather in a house where they bake the bread in a clay oven.
A flatbread is a simple bread made with flour, water, and salt and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened - made without yeast or sourdough culture - although some flatbread is made with yeast, such as pita bread.
