Feta and greens gozleme

A lot of rolling and folding go into making this Turkish flatbread, but when you bite into them all the hard work will be forgotten. The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

The Wine Library: Tomino in cartoccio with taralli


You'll need

8 garlic cloves 250 ml (1 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 2 tomini (see note) 4 thyme sprigs   Taralli dough 250 gm (1 2/3 cup) “00” flour 1 tbsp fennel seeds, coarsely crushed in a mortar and pestle 1 tsp caster sugar 125 ml dry white wine 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For taralli dough, combine flour, fennel seeds, sugar and 2 tsp fine salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add wine and oil and mix until smooth (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a bowl dusted with flour, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to rest (4 hours-overnight).
  • 02
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead lightly and divide into 8. Working with one piece at a time, keeping remainder refrigerated, roll to a cylinder 2cm wide and 30cm long. Halve lengthways, form each half into a ring, secure with a small knot at the top and press to seal. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper and dusted with flour. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Cook taralli in batches in boiling salted water, turning occasionally, until they float (2-3 minutes). Transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper and bake until golden (35-45 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, combine garlic and oil in a small saucepan over low heat, cook until tender (20-25 minutes), drain (reserve oil for another use) and set aside.
  • 05
  • Place a 20cm square of baking paper on a work surface. Place one cheese in the centre, scatter over a few confit garlic cloves and a little thyme, season to taste, gather edges of paper, then tie with kitchen string. Repeat with remaining cheese. Place on an oven tray and bake until cheese melts (10-15 minutes). Serve warm with extra confit garlic and taralli.
Note Tomino is an Italian cheese produced from goat’s milk or a mixture of goat’s milk and cow’s milk. If unavailable, substitute goat’s camembert.
