  1. Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
for the filling
  1. Mix all the ingredient together and set aside
for the dough
  1. Sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder
  2. Rub in the cold butter with your fingertip until the flour resembles fine bread crumbs
  3. Whisk together the egg, yoghurt and water with a fork
  4. Use a knife and mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
  5. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and dust the dough with flour
  6. Knead for 30 seconds and divide into 4
  7. Making sure that the surface, dough and rolling pin are well dusted with flour, roll out one piece of dough into a circle
  8. Place onto a lined baking tray - I use a silpat
  9. Evenly spread a third of the filling (about 4 tablespoons) onto the dough
  10. Roll the second piece of dough into a circle and place on top of the first piece
  11. Evenly spread a third of the filling (about 4 tablespoons) onto the dough
  12. Roll the third piece of dough into a circle and place on top of the second piece
  13. Evenly spread a third of the filling (about 4 tablespoons) onto the dough, using it all up
  14. Roll the fourth piece of dough into a circle and place on top of the third piece
  15. Tip the dough back onto your floured surface and roll out slightly to make sure it is well compressed
  16. Divide into 8 equal triangles
  17. Make a slit in each triangle from the tip to the base, leaving a 1cm piece uncut at each end
  18. Take the tip of the triangle and lift up, push the the tip through the slit and pull back down to where it started
  19. Place the triangle back onto the baking tray, and repeat with the remaining triangles until all 8 are done and back in a circle
  20. Brush with the melted butter and bake for 30 minutes
  21. Leave to cool on a wire rack before enjoying!
