Day 288

Onion Kulcha

I did a little better making these than the aloo paratha debacle. But it was still quite a production. I wish I had someone on staff to make this stuff for me.

Like the paratha, this is a stuffed bread, only it’s baked naan with onions instead of fried flatbread with potatoes. I used Bittman’s recipe, which isn’t online, but it’s just a basic naan recipe with all kinds of spices stuffed inside. It turns out pretty spicy, which is okay, but I would have dialed back on the cilantro. I have a friend who thinks cilantro tastes like soap, and this recipe made me think she might have a point.
