Katlama (Pakistani flat bread)


Pakistan our friendly neighborhood , we have many similarities in our cuisine and culture  that's why we love their food as much as we love ours , these day's i am exploring their cuisine and i found some very interesting  vegetarian recipes , i tried some of them and it came out to be so good that i really wanted  to share with you all. Katlama is a Pakistani flat bread / roti. its taste is very much like the Indian dal kachori , the only difference i found is, we stuff filling in this bread and they topped it with dal mixture and fry it. but it tastes awesome , katlama is basically a street food of Pakistan ..
