Pea and ham soup

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.

You'll need

180 ml milk 150 gm butter, diced 1 tsp caster sugar 250 gm (1 cups) plain flour, sieved 6 eggs   Ganache 250 ml (1 cup) pouring cream 250 gm dark chocolate (60% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped   Hazelnut praline 100 gm caster sugar 10 gm liquid glucose 100 gm hazelnuts, blanched   Salted caramel pastry cream 250 gm caster sugar 125 ml (½ cup) milk, at room temperature 150 ml pouring cream, at room temperature 200 gm (about 12) egg yolks 50 gm (1/3 cup) plain flour 100 gm mascarpone

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Bring milk, butter, sugar, 180ml water and a pinch of salt to the boil in a saucepan over high heat, reduce heat to low, add flour and stir continuously until dough comes away from sides of pan (2-3 minutes). Transfer to an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat until room temperature (10-12 minutes). Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm nozzle and pipe 15cm cylinders onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving 5cm-6cm of space in between. Bake until golden and crisp, turning tray once (25-30 minutes). Remove from oven and cool.
  • 02
  • For ganache, bring cream just to the boil in a saucepan over high heat. Place chocolate in a bowl, pour cream in and stir until chocolate melts (3-5 minutes), then cool completely.
  • 03
  • For hazelnut praline, stir sugar, glucose and 100ml water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat to dissolve sugar, bring to the boil and cook without stirring until dark caramel, brushing sides of pan with a wet pastry brush if sugar crystals form (10-12 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in hazelnuts, spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper and stand until set (15 minutes). Break into small pieces and set aside.
  • 04
  • For salted caramel pastry cream, stir 210gm sugar and 60ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil and cook without stirring until caramel (4-5 minutes). Add milk, 125ml cream and 1 tsp sea salt, and whisk to combine (1-2 minutes; be careful, mixture will foam up). Increase heat and bring caramel to the boil. Whisk yolks and remaining sugar in a bowl to combine, then whisk in flour. Stir in a ladleful of caramel mixture, then transfer yolk mixture to pan of hot caramel. Cook for 1 minute, whisking continuously, then remove from heat, pour into a heatproof dish, cover closely with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming and cool to room temperature (25-30 minutes). Whisk mascarpone with remaining cream until firm and gently fold into salted caramel pastry cream. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm nozzle and refrigerate until needed.
  • 05
  • Halve pastries lengthways with a serrated knife, pipe filling onto bases and sandwich with the tops. Spoon ganache over the top, sprinkle with pieces of hazelnut praline and serve immediately.
