Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Antipasti works really well with Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The Taittinger Brut Millesime with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 58 dollars per bottle.

Taittinger Brut Millesime

Taittinger only makes a vintage champagne when the harvest has been of such outstanding quality that it deserves to be fully vinified. The wine is also marketed after some four to five years ageing. This slow maturation on the lees makes it a very full-bodied champagne, yet enables it to fully express the particular qualities of its vintage.

Instructions

  1. Make a pliable dough from flour, salt and water. Knead well for atleast 10minutes or until the dough is soft, smooth and ready.
  2. If the dough is very sticky and wet, add some more flour.
  3. Cover with a plastic wrap and let rest for an hour.
  4. Meanwhile, cook lentils per package directions (I boiled lentils and water in 1:3 proportion; then reduced heat to simmer and cook covered for 20-25minutes -- proportion and cooking time varies depending on the lentil variety).
  5. Add cilantro, onions, salt and stuffing spices to the cooked lentils. Mix well and set aside.
  6. Divide the dough into 4 equal sized balls.
  7. Using a rolling pin or your hands flatten the dough into a circular disk with a diameter roughly equal to your palm.
  8. Add few spoonful of stuffing onto half of the disk. Fold the other half over and using a bit of water tightly seal the edges making a half circular stuffed disk.
  9. Using your hands flatter the half circular bread as much as possible taking care not to tare the mixture apart (If its really easy to tear it apart then try to reduce the amount of stuffing for the next one).
  10. On a hot pan or griddle, heat a tsp of oil. When hot, add the bolani. Let it cook on one side until well cooked (red marks should start to appear).
  11. Flip the bread over, add a bit more oil if needed and cook again until both sides are thoroughly cooked.
  12. Remove from heat and serve hot with a cooling yogurt dip!
