Gozleme | Turkish Spinach and Feta Flatbread #vegetarian #food

Gozleme is a Turkish extraordinary flatbread with various types of filling. This is one of my most loved with spinach and Feta cheddar. This is an awesome flatbread that is hard outside with delicate and chewy inside loaded up with scrumptious filling.

Gozleme has been in my bookmark list for practically over 2 years. As far back as I originally perused this formula, I had for a long while been itching to make it, however it continued slipping out and I couldn't make it as of not long ago. It is the finish of our first seven day stretch of a to z International flatbread arrangement and I have this tasty Turkish Gozleme for the letter 'G'.

Gozleme is a well known road nourishment in Turkey and can be made with an assortment of filling. The fillings can be either sweet or exquisite and there are a few diverse appetizing variants. The filling can be anyplace between potato to herbs to simply cheddar to this spinach and cheddar.

The batter for the Gozleme is entirely simple and made with simply the essential flour and yeast. There is likewise a smidgen of yogurt to give it that tart flavor, yet on the off chance that you like, it very well may be skipped. The enjoyment of making the Gozleme is in the moving part. The batter must be moved/extended really slight to have a decent proportion of the mixture to the filling. On the off chance that the mixture is rolled excessively thick, the Gozleme will feel a significant piece with an uncooked vibe.


Gozleme | Turkish Spinach and Feta Flatbread #vegetarian #food

To make the dough -

  • All Purpose flour - 3 cups
  • Active Dry yeast - 2 1/4 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Olive oil - 3 TBSP
  • Yogurt - 2 TBSP
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Warm water - 1 1/4 cup might need more or less

To make the Filling -

  • Spinach - 10 oz chopped
  • Onion - 1 finely chopped
  • Feta cheese - 8 oz
  • Crushed red pepper - 1 1/2 tsp adjust based on spice level
  • Olive oil - 2 tsp

To make the dough -

  1. I made the dough in my stand mixer. In the bowl of the mixer, add the flour and salt and mix to combine.
  2. In a measuring cup, heat about 1 cup of water. Add the active dry yeast and sugar to the water and mix well. Cover the cup and let the yeast proof for about 10 minutes.
  3. The yeast would be bubbly and foamy at the end of 10 minutes. If the yeast does not appear foamy, then the yeast might be dead and you have to start with a new batch.
  4. Add the yogurt and the yeast mixture to the bowl along with the olive oil and start mixing. Add more water if needed to make a very soft dough. The dough would be very soft but not sticky.
  5. Dived the dough into 6 equal pieces and make a smooth ball. Place the dough balls on a greased tray, well spaced and cover with a plastic wrap.
  6. Let the dough rise for about 30 minutes to an hour or until it has doubled in size.

To make the spinach and feta filling -

  1. I used frozen chopped spinach to make the filling.for the Gozleme. In a microwave safe bowl, place the spinach and thaw it in the microwave according to the instructions on the microwave.
  2. Squeeze all the extra water out of the thawed spinach and keep it aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and once it heats up, add the chopped onion. Let the onion cook a bit.
  4. Add the crushed red pepper to the onions and let it cook for couple of minutes more. Do not let the onions caramelize too much. Just cook until they are soft and translucent.
  5. Add the prepared spinach to the pan and mix well to combine. Cook for couple of minutes more for flavors to combine. DO NOT ADD SALT. The Feta cheese has a lot of salt and that was just enough for the filling. Also taste the cheese and then decide if you need any extra salt.
  6. Let the spinach onion mixture cool down to room temperature and then add the crumbled feta to the mixture. Mix well to evenly combine.

To shape and cook the Gozleme -

  1. Once the dough has risen, take one piece of dough and place it on a well floured surface.
  2. Start rolling the dough to form a large circle which is very very thin. Make sure that you roll the dough very thin or else the Gozleme will feel very doughy.
  3. Fold two opposite sides of the dough towards the center.
  4. Divide the filling into 6 equal parts. Place one part of the filling in the center of the dough. Refer to the picture below to understand the folding technique.
  5. Now fold the other two opposite sides over the filling towards the center, overlapping and seal the edges well.
  6. Heat a heavy skillet / pan on medium high heat.
  7. Brush the prepared gozleme dough with olive oil and place it on the hot pan, oiled side down.
  8. Cook on medium heat until golden brown and then flip to the other side. Before flipping, brush this side with oil as well.
  9. Cook on both the side until golden brown. Make sure that the heat is on low to medium to allow the Gozleme to cook all the way through. If cooked on too high heat, the outside will cook quicker and the interior will still remain very doughy.
  10. Slice into 2 or 4 pieces and serve warm.
