Kutab (An Azerbaijani Stuffed Flat Bread Naan)

Qutab or Kutab is an Azerbaijani gorgeous and very thin flat bread (naan) which is typically filled with ground meat and onions or green herbs such as mixture of spinach, dill, coriander, … spices and cheese . So, Kutab comes with different fillings and you can change the filling because as I mentioned, you can use any fillings you choose. In North Khorasan Province and NW of Iran this kind of bread (naan) is popular too.

In Indian and Afghanistan cuisines also you can find stuffed bread with different names such as paratha or bolani. Kutab or Qutab is mostly eaten for breakfast. For garnish the bread typically use sprinkle of Sumac or pomegranate seeds, that gives double taste to the bread.

With my recipe you can make 10-12 kutab breads which are medium size but if you make  them in smaller size, you will have more breads.

The size of this kind of bread should be in the size of a medium size pan. For making dough I offer two different recipes one with egg and other one egg free. So it would be your choice 🙂 . And now   I am going to introduce kutab with 2 different fillings 🙂 . Seriously they are sooooooooo good and sometimes I wish I could share them with all you guys.
