I’ve been toying with the idea of a gözleme for a good while now and if Wikipedia’s description is anything to go by I still haven’t had one!
“Gözleme is a savoury traditional Turkish pastry dish, made of hand-rolled dough that is lightly brushed with butter and eggs, filled with various toppings, sealed, and cooked over a griddle“
So here’s my homage to one as I neither brushed it with butter and eggs, or griddled it!
The recipe I used is here but I couldn’t be bothered with the sauce.
I was being lazy and picked up a dough mix from our Tesco Express but it was a pizza mix for one and was no where near enough. As luck would have it I had some fast action dried yeast in and just enough plain flour to make the dough.
I’ll not bore you with dough instructions, its on the link, so here’s the rest…
Toast some pine nuts.
Heat some oil in a pan and fry some lamb mince until browned. Stir in the garlic, ground cumin, coriander, cinnamon and chilli powder. Add the raisins and fry for a little longer. When the meat is cooked turn off the heat and stir in lemon zest, spring onions, pine nuts and seasoning.
Leave to cool.
Roll out the dough then spread the lamb mixture over half, sprinkle with feta then fold over and roll and pinch together. Brush it with oil (as you can see I forgot).
Cook in a 190ºc (fan) preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes.
