Inspired by the taste , I decided to make it our traditional pie called Zelnik.
I must admit that it was very succesful. So I decided to share with you.
Traditional pie called Zelnik, with filling of cabbage, spinach, leeks, cheese, or meat or whatever you prefer.
This time i made with a minced meat.
Here is my way around it.
700 grams for all purposes flour / 25 oz
1 yeast(40gr. or 1.4 oz)
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
Water as needed, about 2 cups – warm water
300 grams of minced meat / 10 oz
1 onions, large size
spices, salt, blak peper.
like a mentioned, you can use , cabbage, spinach, leeks, cheese
First we make a filling, chop the onions and fry it on a little oil, then add the minced meet
and fry a little for about 5 minutes.Take aside to cool down.
Then we make the dough, in a large bowl add flour, sugar, salt and the yeast.
We pour water little by little, not at once and we make a dough.
We split the dough on a eight parts, from each part we make a crust in a size of 20cm (8 inches)
On each crust we put melted margarine , the margarine previously melt a little bit in a microwave, for easier to spreads, expect on the lastone which will be on the top.
For the first crust we need 5 parts , for the second one 2 pieces and the last part dough is for the last one crust which is on the top. Use the round baking pan. The baking pan spread with margarine, place the first crust, put the filling, the second crust , and the last crust on the top, spread with a little oil, and take aside for about 15 minutes covered with a towl. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 ℃(395°F) for about 20 min.
