Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 40 mins

Ingredients

For the filling

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 handfuls of spinach, chopped
  • salt to taste

For the dough

  • 4½ cups (500 gr) whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 1 package ¼-ounce (7 gr) active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Place the chopped onions, spinach, and salt in a pot with ¼ cup of water. Saute over high heat for 5-7 minutes or until the spinach and onion are soft. When it is ready, leave it aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix the dry ingredients for the dough (whole wheat flour, yeast, salt, and sugar).
  3. Fold the warm water into the dry mixture. Using a spoon mix everything well. 
  4. Add the cooled spinach and onion filling and stir well until a well-combined dough is formed.
  5. Line a round baking pan with parchment paper and transfer the dough into it. Sprinkle with some unhulled sesame seeds.
  6. Cover and leave to a warm place for about 30 mins to rise.
  7. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  8. When the dough has reached twice its volume, bake it for 40-45 mins.
  9. Let it cool down before eating.

Notes

  • You may need to add some more flour if the filling is too watery to form the dough.
  • When the weather is colder, we may use the oven to rise our dough faster. We heat it to 120°F (50°C) and then put the baking pan in there for 30 to 40 mins. When the dough has risen, we just turn it to 350°F (180°C) and bake it.
