DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl add yoghurt, 1 egg, melted butter, baking soda, salt and 3 cups of flour.
  • Mix together with your hands. Add the remaining flour slowly and knead mixture. Dough should form as soft but not sticky.
  • In a separate bowl mix together 2 eggs and all the cheese. Mash this into a smooth paste.
  • Separate the dough into 4 pieces.
  • Roll each piece on a floured board to make a circle with approx 40cm diameter.
  • Add 1/4 of the cheese mixture into the centre of the dough and flatten out until it is 10cm from the edge.
  • Fold in the edges of the dough and collect in the centre. Pinch close.

  • Add the khachapuri seam-side down (You can only cook one pie at a time) and fry until golden brown.
  • Turn over and fry the other side.
  • Repeat with the remaining khachapuris.
  • Rub some melted butter on the hot khachapuri before serving.
