About Spinach and Cottage Cheese Bolani with a twist (Afghani Delicacy) Recipe

Afghani Bolani bread is quite similar to the Indian style stuffed paratha or Mexican quesadilla, except that it has fewer and simpler ingredients. In this recipe I used whole wheat flour in place of all purpose flour (maida).
