I had malawah (malawach, melawah) מלוח (also מלוואח) for lunch today. It's a Yemenite dish, a kind of flat, fried bread. Here's a recipe in English and here's one in Hebrew. According to Stahl, the name derives from the flat shape - lauh is "tablet, board" in Arabic, and is cognate to the Hebrew word לוח luach, with the same meaning.
