Gözleme with cheese (Peynirli Gözleme)


Preparation
Sift the flour into a large dish and reserve 1 cup.

Add 1 ¼ tablespoon salt to the remaining flour, mix and make a whole in the centre.

Blend the yeast and sugar with ¼ cup water, pour into the hole and sprinkle with some flour.

Leave in a warm environment for about 15 minutes to allow the yeast to rise.

Add the remaining water gradually and make a soft dough.

Knead for five minutes and leave to rise for 45 minutes in a warm environment.

Wash the spinach and chop it very finely.

Crush the cheese and add it to the spinach, mix and divide into ten portions.

Put flour on hands and divide the dough into ten pieces forming them into balls.

Use the remaining flour and roll out each ball until half a millimetre thick.

Brush with oil.

Spread the filling over half of the pastry and fold into a half moon shape.

Press the edges to seal lightly.

Heat griddle, grease with margarine and place the gözleme.

When the first side is browned, grease and flip the other side and brown.
