DIRECTIONS

  • Mix and combine cottage or ricotta cheese, sea salt and eggs with a fork.
  • On a clean surface lay out a sheet of filo pastry and sprinkle with some mineral water and sunflower oil. Fold the sheet in half on the long side and smear a tablespoon of the cheese mixture over it. Starting from the long end, roll the sheet loosely over the filling until you have a long filo crepe. Do not press or squeeze – leave the room for the cheese and eggs to spread while baking. Slowly twist the crepe round and round to form a spiral. Repeat for the remaining mixture - should make between 10 and 12 spirals.
  • Place one spiral quite near another in a shallow, greased oven proof dish. Do not squeeze them together. Leave enough space for the pie to expand during baking.
  • Mix and combine the remaining filling and oil with sour cream. Smear the top of each spiral with this mixture.
  • Bake in the oven at 200°C for 40 minutes. After 20 minutes, if the pie top browns too quickly, cover with Alu foil.
  • Cool the pie a little, divide into pieces and serve with yogurt, kefir or alone.
