It seems to be very hilarious , unbelievable but it is true and such a thing dose really exists . It's part of my traditional cuisine to boil flat round doughs in salted water or in a big pot of chicken or meat broth and then serves them with a bowl of broth , lentils , fennel herb or nettle herb .
    I think that a dish reflects more than a thing we fill our stomachs with . Each and every food recipes has its own unique story and date of birth under certain circumstances . They also travel from one nation to another so , as we exchange goods we exchange food .
     Today , :) I was making my " Boiled breads " and I was watching and pondering them , thoughts popped out into my mind about the story behind introducing them . I thought it might be a wintery day with no much wood , that urged a lady to think of putting her bread in hot water instead of baking them on fire . At first other women laughed at her new baking method but by the time and under the harsh cold weather of the mountains they begins to do the same because boiling them in water make it easy to keep them for more extra days , they don't get harder by this method of cooking . Just cover them and they will be ready in the stormy foggy winter for you to consume and survive . Because under the attack of fog and rain no one can see the tip of his / her finger to get more wood . This story was imagined by me .
I just wonder if any other of my friends here have the same or similar method of cooking ???

This is something new for me. I can see that you've shared the recipe in the comments below as well. By the way, what's the name of this boiled bread in your native language, Rosemary? Do you simply call it boiled bread or it has a proper name specific to this kind of bread only?

Hi, Rosemary!

If you mean just a dough without anything inside, then no, I have never tasted/seen it.

Because for me dough and bread are absolutely different things.

And I can't even imagine to boil the ready bread

But if you mean a dough, stuffed with something else, then yes. We have "Varenyky" here. It is a dough, stuffed with boiled potatoes or cherries.

When I hear the word "bread" my mind shows me this picture:

It is thick and almost completely dry. We can cut it with a knife. And when it dries to much (on the 4-5 day after baking), it becomes thick like a stone. :)

Nice to read! Okay, here we make something similar but not the exact. We make dumpling  with rice flour then we fill it with something sweet ( mixture of coconut and sugar), we boil it in milk, super tasty! And, yes, another type is....we boil the water then we put  rice flour dumplings ( there is nothing inside them) and after boiling properly we get them out, we eat them with sugar, honey, sometimes with spicy items. It is also tasty!
