This filling traditionally uses gandana, a type of leek found throughout Afghanistan, which is a popular filling for bolani. My grandfather, who was an avid lover of gardening and homegrown produce, grew his own gandana. The vegetable isn’t easily found outside the region, however, so Afghans living around the world often substitute gandana with garlic chives, which has a similar texture and taste.
