Pan Grilled Khachapuri

Khachapuri is a Georgian cheese filled bread dish. It’s somewhat similar to cheese quesadillas,but that’s just similar.Khachapuri is way better.These are very easy to make and take minimal time to prepare.
I make them with mozzarella or suluguni cheese.You can even add feta cheese or  some Parmesan to mozzarella.

Makes 8 Khachapuris
Ingredients:
5 1/4 cups all purpose flour or more if needed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups buttermilk

Cheese filling:

5 cups shredded mozzarella or suluguni cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt if using mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
3-4 garlic cloves crushed
1-2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro (optional)

 melted /2 stick butter and oil for coating hands
 Flour

Directions:

 Mix all dry ingredients and add buttermilk. Knead a soft dough.

The dough should be sticky to the hand

Cover the dough with plastic wrap to rest.
While the dough is resting prepare the filling.

 
Mix well to combine all the ingredients

Coat your hands with oil and take out the rested dough, and divide into 8 equal sections.

Sprinkle flour on the dough and roll the dough on a well floured surface in to a big flat pancake.Add about 3-4 tablespoons of cheese mixture(or more if you want it more cheesier).

Fold the pancake like this all around
        
   Sprinkle some flour and roll into a pancake again.

Heat a skillet on medium heat and place khachapuri pancake on the skillet and close lid.

Cook about 3 minutes each side.Brush each side with melted butter.
