Stuffed Bazlama - A Turkish Bread #BreadBakers

Bazlama is a flat, bread found in Turkey. I have posted a Bazlama flat bread recipe , which everyone loved at home. So this time for the Bread Bakers theme Stuffed Bread , I decided to make this again with stuffing. This  is  a comforting and filling bread. We had this for our dinner with Sour cream.

Makes 6

2 Teaspoon Instant yeast
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Cup Warm Water
1.1/4 Cups All purpose flour
1.1/4 Cups Wheat flour
1 Teaspoon Salt

Ingredients for the f
1 Large Onion, sliced, - lightly caramelized
2 Potatoes - cooked, mashed
Cheese as per your taste - crumbled
1 Tablespoon Dill
1/2 Teaspoon Salt or to taste
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper or to taste

In a large bowl, sift both the flours together with salt. Add the yeast and sugar. mix well . Add water little at a time till it forms a soft dough . Take the dough on the lightly floured counter and knead well for about 5-6 minutes until it becomes smooth .

Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover it with a clean, damp towel. Put aside for about 40 minutes at room temperature until the dough rises to double its size.

Place the dough on the lightly floured counter. Press all over it with your hands to get rid of air bubbles. Cut the dough in 6 pieces with a knife. With your hands to flatten , with a rolling pin roll into a round shape and 1/4 inch thick.

To Stuff Bazlama

Mix all the stuffing ingredients. Place the stuffing half of Bazlama dough (pic),

 Fold. Press the edges to close it up. Let it rest for 15 minutes.

Heat up the medium sized pan just under low heat ( I used a mud pan). Place one Bazlama on it and cover the pan . After 4 - 5 minutes open the pan .  Cook one side of Bazlama until there are some light brown spots on it. 

Then turn it over and cook the other side. Spread some butter over them. Place it in an airtight container to keep warm.

Enjoy this cheesy  warm  Bazlama with sour cream.
