Turkish Pancakes (Gözleme) In Panini Toaster
We bought our yufkas from the market last week and we are coming home. I'm thinking about making a pie, but I'm also weighing my options. "Do you think we can make pancakes in the toaster?" I said to Yasin. He thought for a while, "it's like no way." he said. But it occurred to me that I can never stop without trying once. As soon as I got home, I left Yasin to put the things we bought in the fridge and started to observe. I took out the toaster and folded the pancakes exactly its size. Oh, by the way, yufkas are hand-rolled in the market we went to. Don't ask me how you made it by looking at the phrase "hand-rolled" in the materials section, I didn't make them :) I wanted to point out that the long-lasting phyllo dough sold in the markets can be opened in machines and they are very thick compared to hand-rolled.
Anyway, I heated the machine, put the pancake inside, closed the lid. Our toaster has no temperature settings, it's a plug-and-play type of machine. Makes amazing toast. When it got a little hot, I put butter on the pancake and closed it again. In a few minutes, I looked at it, it was fried, there is no color change under it, so I said dexterity is in butter, I turned the pancake upside down and oiled the non-fried side. While that place is getting red, I wonder if the other side will burn, before I can say that, that side also got red before the first side that was fried was burned. I bought one on the plate, I can't tell you what kind of crispiness it is, what an eat me up consistency. Of course, I wouldn't have done the same for our guests who came to breakfast the next day :)
You can also make the same recipe in a pan. But the toaster has one advantage; Since its area is large, you can fold the pancake wide, in short, the pancake is thin and crispy. Even better, you don't burn your face in front of the stove flame because you don't have to control the temperature. While the pancakes are browning, you can take care of other tasks in the kitchen.
If you want to make it in the pan, it may be better to fold half the dough instead of folding the whole dough, so that it fits comfortably in the pan and can be easily turned. Can I do it in the oven? If you say.. I was curious about the toaster and I tried it, if you are wondering about different methods, I say try it :)
Enjoy the recipe...
- 3 yufka (dough leaves) (you can prepare the dough with this recipe and roll very thin 1 m diameter round leaves),
- 300 g feta cheese,
- 2 handful of chopped dill or parsley,
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil,
- 1 cup milk,
- 1 tbsp butter.
- Mash feta cheese and combine with dill or parsley,
- Lay one of the dough leaves on the counter,
- Spread some milk and oil all over,
- Spread 1/3 of the filling in a square/rectangular sahe in the middle of the dough (in size of of your toaster),
- Fold the opposing edges in the middle,
- Again spread some more milk and vegetable oil (you can drop with the tip of a spoon),
- Fold the other 2 edges in the middle,
- Put the gözleme in the pre-heated toaster and press,
- Wait for 30-40 seconds, brush on top with butter and press again until golden on top,
- Turn gözleme upside down and brush the other side with butter, press until golden on top,
