INGREDIENTS

Dough 

2 cups plain flour, extra for rolling
1 cup natural unsweetened yoghurt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tbsp oil for frying

Filling 

1 bunch English spinach, finely chopped
2 cups baby spinach, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp lemon zest
1 free-range egg
150g Persian feta 
50g fresh mozzarella 
Salt and pepper



METHOD

To make the dough, place all ingredients in a bowl.  Mix until well combined. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until mixture is elastic and springs back to touch. Cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile, mix together spinach, garlic, lemon zest, egg and feta in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, being mindful that the feta is salty.

Portion dough into quarters.  Using a rolling pin, roll each piece into a thin, even rectangle approx. 22cm high x 16cm wide. Spoon spinach mixture down the centre. Fold dough to cover filling, tucking in edges and ensuring there are no air pockets.

Place a large frypan over medium heat. Add oil. Fry each gozleme for for 2-3 minutes each side or until crispy and golden brown. Cut into portions. Serve with a squeeze of lemon.
