Pohca/ Poğaça (Cheese and Parsley Pastries)



Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • salt to taste (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 3 cups self raising flour (may require more)
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white (keep the yolk)
For the filling:
  • half a bunch of parsley (optional)
  • feta cheese, shredded

Method
  1. Mix yoghurt, milk, oil, egg white, salt and flour to form a soft dough. You may need to add more flour as you kneed the dough.
  2. Break small pieces of the dough to form little balls.
  3. Flatten the balls between your palms to form a small circle and lay flat on table, fill it with parsley and shredded cheese and roll back into a ball shape. (I made mine into crescent shapes. To make them like the picture, just place the filling mixture on one half of the circle and fold the other half over, press down the edges).
  4. Place pohca's on a greased oven tray making sure there is room between them.
  5. Brush the top of the pohca's with egg yolk and sprinkle some sesame seeds and nigella seeds.
  6. Cook at about 160 degrees until brown on top.
Thanks for looking. Please check out my other Turkish recipes and not so Turkish ones also! I will be posting a new Pohca/Poğaça recipe very soon. It's probably the softest Poğaça I have ever made.
