Gözleme with cheese and pumpkin

Gozlemele, are some Turkish dishes, which in direct translation means & # 8222pocket & # 8221. They are a kind of pies with different fillings (meat, cheese, vegetables, etc.), baked on a hot plate. The first time we ate at our seaside, at Neptune to be exact. They were prepared by the Turks on the side of the road. An uncle was selling them and behind them were 2-3 women, one of them being inevitably a centenarian, who spread the dough, filled it and roasted it on a large, concave hob.

I was conquered, and of course, I had to try too! The dough is extremely simple to make, and fast. It contains only flour, salt, a little oil and water! Without growth agents, without a lot of kneading, it is probably the simplest dough you can make!

As I said, the filling can be anything, depending on your preferences. I did with what I had around the house, that is, sheep and pumpkin.

  • 250 g flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • hot water, so as not to burn by hand
  • telemea of ​​purebred sheep
  • peeled zucchini and seeds and cut into thin sticks
  • salt, pepper, cinnamon powder, a little olive oil

First the dough is made. Mix the flour with the salt and sift. The oil is mixed with a little water, and put over the flour. Mix and fill with water, little by little, until you get a soft and elastic dough that does not stick. Then leave the dough covered, to rest, for 20 minutes.

For the filling, mix the zucchini with the salt, pepper, cinnamon and oil to make the zucchini slightly greasy. Leave to soak for 15-20 minutes. Then drain the liquid you leave, and mix with grated cheese. I did not give exact quantities because the proportions depend on tastes. The idea is to have more cheese than pumpkin.

From the dough, 3-4 sweet marmalades are obtained. You can make them smaller and bigger. Divide the dough evenly, into 4 or more pieces, and spread a thin circle. Fill half with cheese and pumpkin and fold to obtain a crescent. To stick better you can grease the edges with cold water.

Grease the top with a little olive oil. Heat a frying pan or hob, as hard as possible, and place the goggle with the oiled side down. Leave until golden brown, grease the top with oil and turn on the other side. When it has browned and here it is ready! I ate the sweet potatoes with tomatoes, but it goes great with some yogurt! An honorable Turkish feast! Good appetite!


PUMPKIN CAKE AND CHEESE

Mix the zucchini, cheese, eggs, rice, onion, garlic, greens, salt and pepper.
A mixture comes out like this:

We put the mixture in a greased pan (I made it in a yena bowl).
Cut the tomatoes into slices and the green pepper
(I didn't have bell peppers and I put some hot green peppers) and decorate on top.

Pour the milk over it to cover the pumpkin mixture
Therefore, the amount of milk can be variable.
Sprinkle black and white sesame seeds on top (I put flax seeds instead of black).

Bake in the oven for 40 & ndash 50 minutes until slightly browned on the edges
(my oven doesn't brown much above & hellip).

The tarts are very easy to make, especially since the dough can be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge and the cheese filling is a simple one that is prepared in a few minutes. From the quantities given by me it comes out somewhere at 14-16 pcs, now it also depends on what shapes you use.
