Piyozli qatlama (Layered bread with onions)
"Piyozli qatlama" usually prepared in winter times. It is served with hot soups. But it is also nutritious as itself. Onions are added raw or fried, I prefer fried ones. If you want to use raw onion, then you have to slice them very very thinly. After slicing, mash well with hands.
For four "Piyozli qatlama" you will need:
300 ml of luke warm water
1.5 tsp of salt
Plain flour as needed
800 gr of peeled and sliced onions
50 gr of butter
More butter for greasing
Salt to taste
Little oil for frying
Make soft but not sticky dough out of salt, water and flour. Knead well and cover. Let it rest for 20 min.
Divide the dough in four equal pieces.
In another pan melt 50 gr of butter and fry sliced onions until they are transparent. Sprinkle some salt and mix. Set aside.
Roll out each piece of dough as thin as you can. Grease slightly with melted butter, and sprinkle fried onions over it. Use 1/4 of onions. Start rolling it around itself forming a log.
Now, roll again around forming snail.
Slightly flatten with hands and fry over little oil until nice golden color. Fry over medium heat with covered lid. After one side is cooked, turn "Piyozli qatlama" and fry another side until ready. Repeat with other pieces.
Serve with soups or enjoy it just with hot tea:)
