Kelane Naan Bread

Kelane is a traditional Kurdish stuffed fried flat bread. A very delicious thin bread. This bread is made in different countries such as Iran, Turkey, Afghanestn, Republic Azerbaijan. and referred to by different names. For example in Iran it’s called ‘ Kelane  ‘ in Afghanestan is called ‘ Bolani  ‘ .


Traditionally this wonderful bread is baked on a brick or stone griddle but nowadays, if you want to bake it at home, you can use a pan, like I baked Kelane in a dried pan and in serving time you put some butter on the bread. Kelane bread is not only a bread but also is a full healthy meal.
