Qutab with Cheese and Herbs

Qutab with Cheese and Herbs

Qutab is an Azerbaijani stuffed flatbread made with a thin, crescent shaped unleavened dough. The fillings can vary from meat to just about anything. The outer layer is rolled out very thin and folded over cooked fillings.

When I first came about this dish, I was amazed at how exciting the writer was about making this dish with different fillings. The flatbread is a simple one to make. And for filling you can use meat along with various other ingredients.

Of course when the meat is used, it has to be cooked and filled. If you are using cheese filling, it can be salty cheese like Feta. I further read on this dish and came to know that this is served as breakfast dish. Just like our Parathas, very filling and healthy too.

There are different types of Qutab. A qutab can be stuffed with different fillings like meat, pumpkin, cottage cheese and greens. I settled with a recipe that called for cheese and herbs mix.

So for Q, I have a Qutab for my A to Z International Flatbreads. If you are interested to know what’s Q for Street Food, Check my other space. Qutab with Cheese and Herbs
