Rogan Josh Stuffed Bread 2

Cooking in someone else’s kitchen is no easy task. When it’s a bachelor’s kitchen the challenge is ten-fold. To prepare for our trip I packed two boxes of food and flours (gluten free) as well as kitchen tools that I thought I would need. I should have packed more. I tossed in a few packages of Saffron Road Simmer Sauce for quick and easy iftars and dinners. When we’re at home we tend to make a big iftar that includes dinner. We do this so that we can all eat together instead of having to feed the kids one dinner, making iftar, and then making another dinner later. MarocBaba caved in last night and decided we would do dinner the same way we do it at home.

The little kitchen I’m working in

One of the appetizers I made was a stuffed bread. There’s a version of this in Morocco, stuffed with beef, spices and onions. But because we need to use gluten-free flours it just doesn’t turn out the same. This recipe is a nice addition to the iftar table.


  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1/2 + warm water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 package Saffron Road Rogan Josh Simmer Sauce


  • In a large saute pan brown the ground beef and pour 1/2 pouch of Rogan Josh Simmer Sauce in with the cooking meat. Break up the meat as much as possible and cook until the liquid is reduced. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • To make the dough mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Stream in the vegetable oil and slowly begin adding water. You can use your hand to mix the dough. Continue mixing and adding water to form an elastic but firm dough.

  • On a clean work surface put down plenty of flour. Break the pieces of dough off into small balls, about the size of a walnut.
  • Flatten the dough balls with a rolling pin to about 1/4″ thick.
  • On one dough disc place a 1/2 -1 tsp of the meat mixture.
  • Top with another dough disc and flatten, taking care to seal the edges.
  • Bake on the stovetop with a large pan on medium heat. Each side should cook 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve hot!

*note: barley flour is used in this recipe, if using all purpose flour the color of your bread will be different.

    I would buy some gluten free food! I have never been to Whole Foods, we just had one put in about 20 miles from me. I have heard they have lots of gluten free stuff, and would love to venture up there and check it out. So, I would get some of their gluten free stuff to try!

    I would buy a lot of stuff! Groceries to make my lunch, maybe some energy bars since I’ll be running a lot this year! ( Cross Country) I’ll be waking up super early nowadays! ): But I’ll be investing on a lot of organic foods this year, I wanna make a change in my diet since I haven’t been eating very healthy all my life, plus my bad eating habits would eventually take its toll, so gotta start asap! 😀

    that’s almost exactly like my kitchen, w/ a small counter accross from the oven. I have such a hard time cooking and baking in it! i really like to spread my things out (ingrediants, appliances) and it is almost impossible! how do u do it? do u keep ur appliances like ur coffee maker and toaster on the counter? I have only one base cabinet and the top shelf is only a half shelf so it doesn’t hold much. under my kitchen sink is a cabinet (w/ space on both sides but it is open to the pipes so I don’t want to store food and appliances down their or they will get all rusty and moldy. i had to throw a box full of my things like my veggie brush b/c the it got wet under the sink and everything was green w/ mold;( (they have since put in a new kitchen cabinet and sink but i don’t want to “risk” it by trying. any advice?

      Thankfully my kitchen at home is bigger than this. I’ve found myself using the kitchen table I prepare and spread out. Hanging things on the walls and in baskets helps too.

  13. Georgiana

    I would stock up on my vitamins – Garden of Life and Whole Foods brands!

  14. Jordan Dunne

    I’d buy some unique vegan products that are normally above my budget. Like coconut milk ice cream! YUM.
