2 kg flaouna cheese and halloumi
1 piece yeast, the size of 2-3 large eggs
1 glass semolina or flour
1 glass raisins (optional)
½ teaspoon mehlebi
½ teaspoon mastic
Fresh mint, finely chopped
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 kg plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 glasses of spry butter
1 piece yeast, the size of 2-3 eggs
Mehlebi, mastic and aniseed
lukewarm milk and water
2 glasses of sesame seeds
2 beaten eggs
The filling must be prepared 4-5 hours before.
The filling is made of eggs, special flaouna cheese, halloumi and yeast.
We add the mint, mehlebi, mastic and raisins if we want to.
The next morning we add the baking powder and the mint.
Mix the flour, baking powder, mastic, the mehlebi and aniseed with1 teaspoon salt.
Add the butter and rub into the flour
Add the eggs and milk to make a rather fluffy dough adding as much water as is necessary.
Prepare the dough and leave it for 1-2 hours.
Roll the dough into thin round pieces.
Put the dough onto the sesame seeds.
Press well so the sesame can stick to the bottom side of the dough.
Add a scoop of the filling.
Create the shape you want.
Rub the beaten egg and more sesame onto the flaouna
Bake in a pre-heated oven (180 degrees Celsius)
