Khachapuri — Georgian Recipe
Khachapuri — Georgian Recipe.
- Egg – 1
- Matsoni (or plain yoghurt) – 250gr (8.5 oz)
- Unsalted butter – 100gr (3 oz)
- Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
- Vinegar – 2-3 drops
- White moderately salted cheese (ideally Georgian Imeruli Cheese) – 1 kg (2-2.5 lbs)
- All-purpose flour
Mix egg, matsoni, butter, a pinch of salt and soda in a large bowl. Pour a couple of drops of vinegar on the soda before adding it to the bowl. Add all-purpose flour and mix the dough. It should be soft and stretchy. Cover the bowl with a plastic food wrap and leave it for 1.5-2 hours. Afterwards, mix the dough again and separate it into 4 equal pieces (if your pen is smaller than average, you might need to make 5 pieces). Grate the cheese and separate into 4 equal pieces. Roll the dough in the shape of a circle with the height not more than 1 cm (0.4 inches). Put one piece of cheese in the center of the circle and gently link the edges of the circle together on the top, so that in the end you get a ball with the cheese inside. Afterwards, gently roll the ball to receive a circle not larger than the pen size. It is than ready to be fried. Add some more flour before putting Kachapuri on the pen. Make sure the pen is hot. You can melt some butter (around 1 teaspoon) before frying each Khachapuri.
