A simple Ossetian pie recipe with cheese and beetroot leaves

One of the most popular national dishes of Ossetia are the so-called Ossetian pies. Depending on the filling, each cake has its own name, for example, a pie with meat - this is fydzhyn, with beans - kadurdzhyn, etc. We will tell you how the tsarazhyn is prepared - filled with cheese and beetroot beetroot.

Tsakharajin with cheese and beetroot

The process of making pies from the first time without skill may seem more difficult than it actually is, but if you do not want to suffer with baking and immediately try real Ossetian pies, Moscow and other Russian cities have a large selection of restaurants and delivery services of Ossetian cuisine. And if you are interested in cooking this delicious dish yourself - let's get started!

How to cook tzarahjyn

Prepare the following ingredients for the dough:

  • white wheat flour - 350 g;
  • dry yeast - 15 g;
  • vegetable oil - 30 ml;
  • milk - 200 ml;
  • sugar - 10 g;
  • salt - 10 g

Opara in a bowl

First of all, we will make a brew - a billet used to make yeast dough. Heat the milk on the fire to a warm state (not hot) and remove the dishes from the fire, and then add the yeast, sugar and salt. From above make a small flour cap: sprinkle about a teaspoon of flour on top. After that, the opara should rise - it will take about fifteen minutes.

Pie filling

And at this time you can start making the stuffing, which is famous for Ossetian pies. You will need:

  • Suluguni cheese - 250 g;
  • butter - 20 g;
  • dill - 20 g;
  • green onions - 20 g;
  • young beet tops - 100 g

Cheese and crushed beet leaves

Grate suluguni cheese on a coarse grater, finely chop our main ingredient - beet leaf leaves, as well as other herbs - onion and dill. Then you should pour chopped greens to the cheese and mix everything together. It’s better to interfere at once with your hands - this is how real Ossetians prepare, and it is necessary for the greens to give juice. Since this recipe uses suluguni cheese, which already contains a sufficient amount of salt, it is not necessary to add additional salt.

Cooking dough

The filling is ready, so it's time to check the brew.If it rose, and a film formed on the surface, then you can proceed to create a test. Take a suitable dish and pour the brew there, then add white flour and vegetable oil. Start kneading the dough with your hands, adding flour as needed, until you feel that the dough begins to lag behind the walls of the dish.

Dough kneading process

Kneaded dough you should go soft, not dense. Cover it with cling film or a towel and put it in a warm place without drafts. After twenty minutes, the dough will rise, and it can be used to make Ossetian pies.

Let's start with the blank. Roll balls of dough and filling of the same size. You need to roll the ball with the dough into a cake and place the ball with the filling in its middle. Grasp the edges of the cakes and start wrapping the stuffing around with it, as if creating a kind of bag from dough. When all the ends of the cakes converged in the middle and the filling was closed, the billet is ready.

Bag of dough with filling

The resulting lump should be rather thinly rolled out, but do not overdo it so that holes do not appear, and in the middle of the resulting cake, make a small round hole,through which the filling will be visible. Carefully place the cake on a baking sheet and put it in the oven, preheated to 250 degrees.

After 15-20 minutes, the Ossetian tzarandzhin pie will be ready. Grease it with butter to make it soft, and serve on the table, dividing the cake with a knife into eight pieces. Enjoy your meal!

Sliced ​​pie
