  • Instructions

    1-In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yogurt, vegetable oil, and warm water. Mix well until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15 minutes.

  • 2-Meanwhile, prepare the filling by combining the crumbled feta cheese, plain yogurt, fresh parsley, fresh dill, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.

  • 3-Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • 4-Divide the dough into two equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion of the dough into a thin rectangle, approximately 12x8 inches.

  • 5-Spread half of the yogurt filling evenly over the rolled-out dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Starting from one of the longer sides, tightly roll the dough into a log shape.

  • 6-Carefully transfer the rolled dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the same process with the second portion of the dough and remaining filling.

  • 7-Brush the tops of the rolled dough with melted butter, ensuring they are evenly coated.

  • 8-Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.

  • 9-Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing into individual servings.
