For the filling

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

For the dough


  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix the dry ingredients for the dough (whole wheat flour, yeast, salt, and sugar).
  • Fold the warm water into the dry mixture. Using a spoon mix everything well. 
  • Add the cooled spinach and onion filling and stir well until a well-combined dough is formed.
  • Line a round baking pan with parchment paper and transfer the dough into it. Sprinkle with some unhulled sesame seeds.
  • Cover and leave to a warm place for about 30 mins to rise.
  • While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • When the dough has reached twice its volume, bake it for 40-45 mins.
  • Let it cool down before eating.

You can find detailed instructions with photos in the post above.


  • You can add some more flour if the filling is too watery so you can form the dough.
  • Sometimes I use the oven to rise the dough faster. I 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, just turn it to 350°F (180°C) and bake it.
