How to cook Ossetian pies step by step with photos


The first thing I was treated to in Ossetia, and I was visiting my friends, was of course a pie, we went to the countryside in the evening and I was treated to a hot pie. When my friend asked me if I knew what the pie was made of, I said no, then she said that it was made of beet tops, to which I was very surprised, because we usually throw them away.

I'm editing the recipe! One person didn't make it! I think it was stale yeast and something with the flour. If you don't trust it, make the kind of yeast dough you're used to. I don't make thick dough at all, it's very soft and you should only put fresh yeast, maybe you'd better put a pack of Saff-moment, although Ossetians put fresh yeast in it, but I don't work with them Dissolve 1 to 1.5 teaspoon (or a packet of saf-moment) of dry (but not old) yeast with 100 ml of sugar. warm water and let rise. In the remaining (600 ml) warm water, put salt, sugar and sourdough, stir everything and pour in flour. Knead the dough. Coat kneaded dough with vegetable oil, and cover with clingfilm and let it rise for two hours.

Meanwhile prepare the filling. In summer I make it with beet leaves. In Ossetia they also make it with just beet leaves, and some people add green onions, dill and parsley, coriander and basil. I had good minced chicken this time. I put in some green onions and whatever herbs I had. The whole secret of Ossetian pies is to have as much stuffing as there is dough. The thinner is the dough in the pie, the more skillful is the hostess. This dough should be divided into three parts, you get balls about 12-15 cm. in diameter. The filling must be the same amount. If it will be beet leaves, they should be young and finely chopped. This stuffing should not be salted too much, just a little salt. Roll out the ball into a circle about 20 - 25 cm. Diameter and put the stuffing on it.

Spread the filling evenly on the dough.

Now you have to put the edges of the dough together like this:

I got it like this.

You need to turn the pie over and carefully use your hands to flatten the filling, starting from the edges, not stretching it too much, because you still need to stretch it in the pan.

Put the pie on a wide pan (I brought this pan from Ossetia) or on a sheet and already stretch them to the diameter of the pan or the width of the sheet. They're put on a dry sheet, but I smear some margarine on it. Ossetian pies are usually about 30 or 35 centimeters. in diameter, but I've seen smaller ones. You have to make a hole to let the air out.

These pies don't take long to bake. And they have a secret. Place in a preheated approximately 180 to 200 degrees Celsius oven, first on the bottom shelf for about 5 minutes. Then move it to the top shelf for about 20 minutes, in general until it gets browned. One more secret of Ossetian pies: after baking, butter the top and edges abundantly with a good piece of butter. I used 50 grams. If the butter is not absorbed by the dough, leave it in the middle; it will melt and soak into the filling.

The pies I made were 30 centimeters in diameter. This is how they are.

ENJOY!!!
