Tbilisi khachapuri recipes

Khachapuri is a traditional Georgian dish, a bread filled with a cheese. Let's see some recipes.

Khachapuri recipe 1

ingredients:

Wheat flour600 ml
Kefir200 ml
Eggs2
Salt1 teaspoon
Sugar1 teaspoon
Baking soda0.5 teaspoon
Sunflower oil1 teaspoon
A hard cheese400 gram.
Butter50 gram

The dough:
take a pot, pour there kefir, add one egg, salt, sugar and butter, then stir it up.
Sieve 400 ml of wheat flour, add baking soda, mix it up and add it to the pot.
To make a soft dough, add some flour to form the dough that is soft and it can keep its shape. If it is OK, the dough would be just a little sticky to the touch. Do not add too much flour, or khachapuri would be too tough and dense.
Cover the pot with a lid, and let it stay for a while.

The filling:
grate the cheese using a grater with large holes. Add one egg to the cheese. The filling is ready.
Roll the dough to form a sausage-shape roll, slice it into nine pieces.
Create round shapes out of nine pieces.
Put in a center of a piece some fillings.
Now use peripheral parts of the piece to cover its center, with a little overlap.
Turn it upside down, and roll it just a little bit. Then repeat it.
Put it on a hot pan (don't use a butter!), cover the pan with a lid, and bake khachapuri until it gets golden color.
Grease the khachapuri with butter.

  4. Cut the dough in four even pieces. Each part cut into two uneven parts. Roll out them into tiny circles.
