Afghanistan is a fascinating country in which to research vegetarian meals, because some believe it is their god-given right to eat meat, and vegetarians are often shunned. Traditionally these pastries, known as boolawnee, also contain chicken — but they are so stunningly tasty they need no meat at all. Serve with Mint chutney, Chutney for momos or Tomato chilli jam.
