Buckwheat pastry filled with Feta Cheese and ham - Slane Kifle

A very tasty snack, perfect for all occasions. Made to be shared.


1 cup buckwheat flour - optional (you can find it in the health food isle in you local supermarket)
2 cups white flour
1 sachet yeast
1 egg lightly beaten
warm water
pinch of salt and sugar
Egg yolk extra
Feta cheese
Smoked Ham


Combine buckwheat flour and white flour with the yeast. Mix with a wooden spoon and add salt and sugar. Add egg and water and knead until you get a smooth and soft texture. Leave to stand for 30 minutes. Once doubled in size knead again and leave for a further 30 minutes.

Divide dough into 20-24 small balls, Roll each ball into an oval shape, and in the middle place one slice of smoked ham and crumble some Feta cheese on the ham. Roll starting from the narrow side of the oval. Cut the top slightly with a knife - 3 lines so you get a nice separation while baking. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with poppy seeds or black sesame seeds.

Happy Baking :)
