Ingredients

For the Dough

  • 2 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour (Maida)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt plain / Plain Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup Water (more or less may be required depending on the flour)

For Filling

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Onion Chopped
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 3-4 medium size potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Red chilly powder / Smoked Paprika (as per taste)

  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 Cups Spinach chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Mint chopped/torn into small pieces
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Parsley/Coriander

Instructions

For the Dough

  • Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add yogurt and water. Give it a quick mix.
  • If the dough is dry add more water a tablespoon at a time.
  • Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover and set aside.

For the Filling

  • Heat oil in a pan. Once hot saute onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes or until translucent.
  • Add in the potatoes, spinach, Tomato paste, coriander powder, Red chilly powder, Black Pepper powder and salt.

Cooking the Gözleme

  • Divide the dough into 6 equal parts or as desired on the size required.
  • Roll it out as thin as possible and in the shape of a rectangle.
  • Spread the filling evenly in the center, leaving around 1.5 inches from each side.
  • Top it up with chopped tomatoes, feta cheese and mint.
  • Very lightly brush the edges with water.
  • Take one side and put it on the mixture. Carefully grab the other end and put it on the first one, so that it covers and seals.
  • We need to make it in the shape of an envelope so that the filling is nicely sealed with the dough.
  • Cook it on slow until evenly cooked from all the sides.
    Gözleme
  • Enjoy it hot.

Notes

All Purpose Flour/Maida can be replaced with whole wheat flour or you can use a combination of both. The texture of the bread will be different based on the flour used.
