Katlama Recipe

Pakistan is the land of gluttons and spicy food lovers, and nothing says spicy better than a good ol’ tasty katlama recipe. This savory, hot and spicy flatbread is the Pakistani counterpart of the Italian pizza but our version is obviously the tastier and more flavorsome one. This tasty recipe is prevalent in the Punjab province of Pakistan especially in the historic city of Lahore; it is served as a popular street snack. Many other spicy and tangy recipes like the peri peri chicken, the spicy tawa fish recipe, chicken qeema paratha recipe, mutton champ recipe and delectable Mutton Nihari Recipe can be found on the menu. For the preparation of a katlama, dough spiced with chili powder and garam masala is prepared which is then added with food colors, mostly red. This dough is then made into small balls which are sprinkled with washed urad daal (locally known as daal mash), coriander and dried pomegranate seeds. Prior to the deep frying process, the katlama is covered in a coating made with chickpea powder paste locally known as besan. In some cases, the katlama is made with a coating of minced meat inside or on the dough and then fried in oil. The vegetarian version of the katlama is primarily served on the eastern side of Lahore.
