8
500 g flour
25 g yeast
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup oil ( any kind )
250 g cheese ( the softer the better )
A handful of dill
1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water ( be careful not to use hot water, because high temperatures will kill the yeast ). 2. Combine the yeast water, salt, pepper and flour. Use a spoon to blend the ingredients until the dough becomes hard to mix. 3. Start kneading the dough with you hands, adding a little bit of oil once in a while. 4. Knead dough until it stops being sticky. If it’s too hard kneading it in the bowl, you can transfer it to the kitchen countertop. After kneading, leave to rise for about 30 minutes. 5. While the dough is rising, wash and finely chop the dill, mash the cheese with a fork and combine them in a bowl. 6. When the dough has risen, take half of it and using a rolling pin spread it over a slightly oiled kitchen countertop. The dough should be no thicker than 0.5 cm. Then, using a bowl or a plate, cut a round shape. 7. Take two tablespoons from the cheese mixture and spread them over the dough. 8. Fold the circle, making sure that the mixture stays inside. You could now flatten the dough again,. 9. Fry the bread on both sides until nicely brown.
