Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
We were in an Azerbaijani restaurant the other day and discovered this bread filled with potatoes. Qutab is a stuffed pastry dish that is particularly popular in Azerbaijani cuisine. In this version, potatoes, spinach and aromatic herbs are combined to create a hearty filling that is wrapped in a thin pastry. Here is my variation of Qutab.
