Acharuli Khachapuri Recipe
- 28 oz. flour (800 g)
- 1½ tbsp. dry yeast
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup oil
- 2½ cups lukewarm water
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 1 lb. ricotta cheese (500 g)
- 9 oz. feta cheese (250 g)
- 5 oz. shredded cheese blend (150 g)
- 7 oz. shredded mozzarella (200 g (optional: replace with more feta))
- 1 egg
- In a large bowl, mix the flour with the yeast.
- Add the sugar, egg, and oil.
- Add a cup and a half of water, and then start kneading for a few minutes.
- Add a tablespoon of salt and then gradually add the rest of the water.
- Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on the counter.
- Knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth, even, and not sticky. The dough should be flexible as you stretch it without sticking to your fingers or the counter.
- Place the dough back in the bowl and cover it with a towel or plastic wrap.
- Allow the dough to rise for about an hour.
- Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on a lightly floured counter.
- Knead the dough into a large ball and then divide it into 10 parts using a dough cutter.
- Knead each part and roll it into a smaller ball.
- Cover the balls with a towel and let them rest on the counter for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix all the filling ingredients in a large bowl.
- Divide the filling into 10 portions, equal to the number of dough balls.
- Roll out each dough ball with some flour into a thin circle.
- Put the filling in the middle of the circle and spread it along its length but don’t reach the edges from any side.
- Roll the dough from one edge towards the filling and slightly over it. Do the same with the other side.
- Secure the ends tightly and twist once so the seam faces down.
- Sprinkle some flour on the dough and transfer it onto parchment paper.
- Place on a baking tray and convection-bake on the lowest rack of the oven at 450°F (230°C), until slightly golden.
- Remove from the oven, and create a little hole in the cheese filling using a spoon.
- Crack the egg into a small bowl.
- Use a spoon to carefully transfer the yolk with some of the egg whites to the hole in the filling.
- Put the baking pan back in the oven.
- Bake until golden and the yolk is at your preferred level of doneness.
- We recommended brushing the hot dough with melted butter and putting a cube of butter on the yolk. Also, it’d taste best if you use Georgian Sulguni cheese.
