  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 4 gm Active Dry yeast 1/2 tbsp
  • 1/2 cup Lukewarm water
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 200 g feta cheese crumbled
  • Vegetable oil for shallow frying

Instructions

  • Add the flour into a large bowl and mix in the salt, sugar, yeast and pour in the olive oil.
  • Knead the dough by slowly incorporating the lukewarm water until the dough forms a smooth and elastic bowl. Let it rest for 30 minutes or so.
  • Divide the dough into equal size balls (around 4-6).  Roll them into circles of 4-6 inches in diameter as thinly as possible, but enough so that it does not tear. 
  • Spread feta cheese on one disc, and place the other on top of this. Seal the edges. One can make some designs using fork.
