Homemade gozleme

Last night's dinner snapped moments before it was devoured.

Homemade gozleme is so easy to make. All ingredients are in bold.

  • Put 200g full-fat plain yoghurt in a bowl and sift 250g plain flour, 3 tsps baking powder and a pinch of salt on top.
  • Mix with a wooden spoon and then finish off with your hand.
  • Knead dough for a couple of minutes (I don't even bother taking the ingredients out of the big bowl I use) until dough is no longer sticky.
  • Put dough in a clean bowl lightly oiled with olive oil and cover with cling film. Leave for about an hour.
  • Divide dough into four balls.
  • Roll each ball into a dinner-plate-sized circle.
  • Place washed-and-dried spinach leaves on one half of each circle.
  • Crumble feta over spinach.
  • Fold the other side of dough over mixture and pinch edges together before sealing with a fork.
  • Fry each one in a pan with olive oil for a few minutes each side until golden brown.
  • Remove from pan, cut and serve with lemon, salt and pepper.

I cook two at a time in a large frying pan. As the base becomes firm when it's cooked, these are super-easy to turn.


  1. Open my reading list and find exactly what I'm looking for! How's that!

    Ate these on the weekend, yum! I'd forgotten how delicious they are and I planned to google a recipe, now I won't have to. Thanks Vera. I'll make them today and let you know how I go. That's dinner taken care of.

  2. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for sharing this recipe. I've had these at a few markets and can't get enough. I completely understand how these were snapped up.

  3. Must try this, we've done faux gozleme before with wraps but would love to make the real thing!

  4. That sounds way too easy. And oh so delicious! There is a Middle Eastern spinach fatayer that is similar but definitely not so easy to make. I am definitely bookmarking this to try over the weekend. Yum! Best wishes, Tammy

  5. Made them last night Vera. Easy and delicious. Just like the real thing!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you x

    p.s. I've already started to share your great recipe with friends
