Kutaby with cheese and spinach

Useful, very tasty and easy-to-cook kutaba with greens in Azerbaijani style is an excellent option for savory pastries for the whole family. Kutaby are thin cakes with a crescent shape. Homemade kutabs with filling are tender, and fresh greens add spice to the cakes. You will not spend much of your time, and a dish of Azerbaijani cuisine, prepared at home, will decorate your table: the result will pleasantly please your beloved.

Today, along with “I love to cook,” I want to tell you how and from what to cook Azerbaijani kutabs with herbs.


For filling:

  • 70 grams of spinach;
  • 70 grams of cottage cheese;
  • 70 grams of hard cheese.

For the test:

  • 220 grams of flour;
  • 110 ml of boiling water;
  • 5 grams of turmeric;
  • half a teaspoon of salt.

Kutaby with cheese and spinach. Step by step recipe

  1. Rinse fresh herbs well and shake off moisture.
  2. Grind finely with a sharp knife.
  3. Crush the cottage cheese with a fork, grate the cheese on a fine grater.
  4. Combine chopped greens with cottage cheese and cheese and mix well. The filling for kutabs is ready.
  5. Now we start kneading the dough: combine the flour with salt and turmeric, mix, and then add boiling water and knead the dough well. Wrap the finished dough in a film for 5-7 minutes
  6. Divide the finished dough into eight approximately equal parts.
  7. Form a round cake from each part of the dough and roll them out using a rolling pin (roll out the dough thinly, how thin the cuts will be).
  8. Put the filling on one half of the tortilla, cover it with the second part of the tortilla, pinch the edges well and walk along the edges of the kutaba with the cloves of the fork or squeeze the edge of the plate (it is important to ensure that as little air as possible is left inside the kutaba).
  9. Fry the cakes in a dry, well-heated frying pan on both sides (ideally, use a cast-iron frying pan. But on Teflon or ceramic, everything will turn out no worse).
  10. Finished thin kutaba with herbs grease with melted butter.

I also want to add from myself: I prepare such cakes from unleavened dough with meat filling, and it is also very tasty if you make cheese filling.

Homemade kutabs are delicious hot and cold. I serve such cakes to the table with sour cream. During the preparation of this dish, your imagination has a place to take a walk.

I share the recipe for kutabs with herbs on the portal "I like to cook." Come back often, I have a lot of interesting things for you that will pleasantly surprise and deliciously feed your family.
