for the filling

for the dough

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