Yoghurt pastry: 400g plain flour, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2 tubs light plain yoghurt. Mix to a pliable dough and rest in fridge for at least one hour. Grill one sliced aubergine, zucchini, pepper, 4 chopped tomatoes, season…in some olive oil fry one chopped onion, 4 cloves garlic; line a dish with baking paper, roll out the pastry slightly larger than its area and layer as follows: sliced gbejniet (goat cheese), zucchini, sliced mozzarella, tomatoes and onion mix, more goat cheese (you may also use the herb or peppered one), and finish off with a layer of grilled aubergine and some grated cheddar or gbejna (or a mixture of both!)…..fold the edges and pleat them…..brush with beaten egg and sprinkle some sesame seeds…..bake in a preheated oven for 45 mins. on 180 degrees for the first 20 mins, then lower to 150. Good eaten hot or cold! 🙂

    Hi,

    The above recipe sounds very good. One small question, for the pastry do I need only those 3 ingredients, or do I have to add any water or margarine?? Also, the tubs of light yoghurt, are the small local ones? Or do they need to be big?

    Many Thanks.

    Regards,
    Joanne

        Hi,
        Is it good if I had to use the normail shortcrust pastry? I did it myself. The one we usually use for ricotta pies, chicken pies etc. Or should I prepare the yoghurt pastry as in recipe? Thanks for your help and opinion. Also, when frying the onion, I should add the garlic, and tomatoes, or I grill the tomatoes alone and place them apart? Kindly help. I should be doing it tonight so, I’m not really sure.
        Regards,
        Joanne
