Shotis puri or simply shoti (Georgian: შოთის პური) is a type of traditional Georgian bread, made of white flour and shaped like a canoe.[1] Shoti baked in a specific bakery called tone or torne/turne (old Georgian). The word is cognate with tandoor. The bread is served as any other bread, but it tends to be more popular on special celebrations such as Easter, Christmas, and New Year's Day, as well as birthdays and weddings.[2]
