Excerpt from the introduction:
«Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά που είναι το απόγειο της μαγειρικής. Είναι τα πιο φρέσκα υλικά, οι πιο πολύπλοκες γεύσεις είναι το καθημερινό ή το σπάνιο; Δεν είναι τίποτε απ΄όλα αυτά. Το απόγειο δεν είναι ούτε η κατανάλωση του φαγητού ούτε το μαγείρεμα, αλλά η προσφορά του φαγητού και η συντροφικότητα…»

Ingredients (5 fried buns)

  • 400 g (0.18 oz) flour
  • 5 g (7.1 oz) dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) lukewarm water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) feta cheese
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) chream cheese (manouri or cottage cheese or myzithra cheese)
  • oil for frying
In a large bowl sift the flour. Roll in a center puddle and add the yeast, oil, vinegar and about ¾ of lukewarm water.
Mix with your hands and rub the ingredients until they look like breadcrumbs.
Add the remaining water and salt. Knead loosely folding without squeezing the dough for 10 minutes. Form a ball that sticks slightly to the fingers…
… but do not add flour, it will harden the dough and will not be smooth. Leave it in a bowl covered with a towel for 30 minutes until you rub the cheese.
Divide the dough into 5 or more pieces and mold balls between your palms. Roll each one, with the help of a rolling pin, onto lightly floured surface.
Roll out a thin filo with approximately Ø30cm (Ø11.8 in).
Sprinkle on the entire surface of the filo with ⅕ of grated cheese.
Turn the edges of the filo to cover up the filling.
Press carefully with a rolling pin to widen and to get as round shape possible, without opening.
Fold in two and press gently with your palm. Let it aside, covered with towel.
Repeat the same for the rest of the dough.
In a large pan put oil to burn and fry the buns a little by little because they inflate.
Once they get red on the one side, turn them to the other with the helps of a slotted spoon.
Remove them from the pan and place them on absorbent paper. Eaten hot.
Optionally sprinkle and enjoy with honey.
