Turkish filled Pide of the Sourdough variety.....

Hi All,

Back lurking about the boards again...thought i'd post a bake i did last week for my nephew's 1st B'day.

Turkish Pide recipe i converted to SD.

One is a lamb mince/saganaki kinda thing and the other is based on a spanakopita filling....

They were yum.

Cheers,
Sam.

I think that Jeremy posted some pics of these before... What is the history behind the dish?

Do you have a recipe that you could post?  These look like a good pizza night substitute.

Thanks for coming back...

Hi Sam, thankyou for kindly sharing your recipe for these wonderful morsels!

I am very new to this sourdough baking, and wondering if you could elaborate on your recipe. Once I have my biga mixed and left overnight, I mix all the other ingredients in on day 2. You mentioned knocking it back at this stage?

Do you let it rise, knock it back, let it rise then cut and fill it, allow to prove again for a short while, then bake?

I am confused (not hard!!!)

Thankyou, Sharona

Sorry to be a pain but what about your wonderful sounding fillings...  Are they secret?

If not I would be happy to take a stab at the whole dish.  Or, if you can find what you consider a decent recipe and point me to it on the web...:)

Yes a secret but one i will share :)

Lamb Pide filling

350g lamb mince
1 brown onion bruniose
1 carrot finely grated
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 sprigs fresh oregano, picked
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and crushed
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (toast with cumin seeds)
1 egg
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp kecap manis

Mix all above well, grate about 80-100g of saganaki and fold in

Spanakopita Pide filling

2kg baby spinach, washed
4 spring onions sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup fetta
1/2 cup ricotta
3 eggs
squirt of good olive oil
Salt / Pepper
Fresh nutmeg, grated

Soften the garlic and spring onions in a bit of olive oil, then add the spinach until wilted.
Drain excess water, it will release a lot more liquid once its off the heat. Mix with remaining ingredients when cool

As for filling, i generally divide and roll out my pides after knocking back the bulk ferment on the second day. Let them prove a bit on the peel, then fill down the middle wrapping sides over as i go. Pinch the ends together and into the oven.

See below for some mini ones i made :)

Cheers,
Sam

and I LOVE the pide recipe!! Made 12 pides. The crust was thin and crisp, and the crumb...oh, so soft and delicious. Thank you, thank you, Sam!

I winged the filling. The not-so-photogenic one has minced mutton, cubed eggplants, golden raisins, onions, bbq-sauce, zattar, and, my fav has salmon, tartare sauce, zucchini, cabbage and basil. My shaping needs practice, a lot more practice.

 


WOW!~ I am trying these on the weekend!

Where i live we are surrounded by leb and turkish bakeries..but i cant resist trying my own!

My fave fillings (from the local bakery) is a a tangy silverbeet with lots of sumac, and grated saganaki cheese! I'm gonna give 'em a go! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I make a version with cubed boiled potato, spinach, fetta garlic and an egg

Its really good

That is a mouthwatering dish, it looks so delicious and yummy, i feel hungry when i saw that pictures, ill try to make one of that.

By the way thanks for letting me post my messages.
