We are starting the last week in our Cooking Carnival, the September Mega Marathon. I have been doing Potato as One Ingredient theme all of this month, with each week with a subtheme featuring Potato as the star ingredient. I have done Fries and Chips, Starters, Gravies and Breakfast for the past four weeks. For the final and last week, I will be showcasing Flatbreads with Potato as the star from different countries.
For day 1 of Flatbread, I have Gozleme from Turkey. Gozleme is a stuffed flat bread, that Turks love a lot and have been making over thousand years. It's a street food and is also part of the Turkish Breakfast. It is also part of the Mezze Spread. I have adapted mine from here when I was inspired by Priya's adventure with Flatbreads.
This recipe was one of the first ones I cooked for this BM and also one that I made for the elders at home. Everybody simply loved it much and though it is quite similar to our aloo paratha, there is something different about the dough being so sticky and patted by hand. More like our Polis.
