AFGHAN POTATO AND SCALLION BREAD - BOLANI KACHALOO — Home | Afghan Culture Unveiled
By Humaira Bolani e kachaloo, unleavened bread stuffed with potato, scallions and cilantro is one of my favorite Afghan snacks.It’s in complete opposition to Mr. Atkins’ dietary rules: starch on the outside, starch on the inside.Maybe that is what makes it so delicious.Bolani can also be filled with other delicious stuffing:Chinese green onions (gandana) , spinach,lentils, butternut squash or whatever you like.
Afghani Cilantro Chutney Recipe - Food.com
A multi-purpose condiment for using on boulanee, rice, pasta, etc. Very spicy and acidic! For best results use the freshest cilantro leaves you can find. An Afghani-American gave me this recipe sans measurements. Determination in recipe interpretation is a good trait. This isnt your run-of-the-mill condiment-very unusual indeed.
Afghan cooks are not accustomed to using exact measures when they are cooking. I try to give such measures, without which many of the recipes would be puzzling to non-Afghans, but I don’t mean them to be taken them too literally; especially with ingredients like salt, pepper, sugar, cooking oil, amounts can be changed to suit individual tastes.
