Gozleme is a traditional savory Turkish flatbread and pastry recipe made of hand rolled leaves of yufka dough that are lightly brushed with butter and eggs, filled with various toppings, sealed and cooked over a griddle. The dough is usually unleavened and made only with flour, salt and water.
The word goz derives from Turkish meaning compartment in reference to the pocket of dough in which various toppings are sealed and cooked over griddle or tawa.
Toppings of Gozleme are various and vary by preference and region which includes, lamb, meat, chicken, sea foods or vegetables like eggplants, potatoes, zucchini, onion, peppers and more.
It’s a very comforting food which you can serve in breakfast as snack. This time I used boiled potatoes, green onion and grated cheese with salt and pepper as filling which gives very moist and soft texture. My whole family loves this Turkish Gozleme. I get the idea of this recipe from Srivall’s blog, personally I love her recipes and pictorial view.
