Patatesli Gozleme/Turkish Potato & Cheese Gozleme

Gozleme is a popular Turkish stuffed flatbread and its quite a comforting food whoever loves stuffed flatbreads. My today's post is potato and cheese loaded flatbread which is quite a filling meal for anyone. Gozleme comes from the Turkish world 'GOZ'' which is refers to the Little eyes or brown circles that form on the dough while its gets cooked. Am postng Turkish potato and cheese gozleme for this week's blogging marathon as am running with Stuffed flatbread from different countries. My kids love potato and cheese in anything,and this Gozleme is our recent favourite. Quite a filling one and definitely a comforting food if you are craving for something cheesy for your brunch,lunch or dinner.

Potato & Cheese Gozleme

Though i used potato and cheese in filling, i couldnt stop myself adding some chopped spinach leaves as i want to feed my family with healthy greens in it. Gozlemes are just prefect to pack in anyone's lunch box as well. As these stuffed flatbreads are easy to freeze for later use, trust me you can prepare them in large batches. However dont forget to prepare this flatbreads atleast once, am sure you will definitely enjoy this satisfying flatbreads without any fuss. I used potato for filling, but you can prepare your own filling with loads of veggies and cheese. Just mix and match the ingredients to prepare your own dose of Gozleme.

Divide the dough and roll it as thin as possible.

Place a portion of the filling in the centre of the rolled dough, bring the edges to the centre to form as an envelope.

Repeat the same with the rest of the dough.

Even I made these for day 2. You shaped the gozleme so perfectly. I actually want to try these next time with just spinach, though I like the idea of adding some spinach to potato filling.

This sounds so much like our aloo paratha, but the addition of cheese and spinach makes it different. Looks absolutely yum.

This looks so similar to our vegetable paratha. I would say, Adding spinach to the filling gave it colour. Yummy

Addition of palak is an interesting twist to this Turkish version of our aloo paratha.
