Qutab is an Azerbaijani dish made from thinly rolled dough that is cooked briefly on a convex griddle known as saj.[1][2][3]


Qutab is made by creating a stiff dough from flour, water, eggs, and salt. The dough is rolled into a thin circular layer and the middle of each circle filled with stuffing before finally being folded into a crescent shape. The resulting patties are griddled on both sides and served by pouring over butter on top. Qutab is usually served with yoghurt with green coriander, fennel and sumac.[4][5]


There are many variations of qutab: usually, pumpkin and greens are used as fillings.[6] There are also Shamakhy qutab, Yashyl Qutab and Qarın qutabı, deve qutabi specific for Jorat settlement. They are regional variations of qutab in Azerbaijan.[7][8]
