Cooking cakes with kefir cheese:
Step 1: Prepare the cheese.
We will intervene the cheese in the dough itself, and for this it needs to be ground first, so rub your slice of cheese on a medium or large grater.
Step 2: Knead the dough.
Pour all the kefir into a deep plate at once, add sugar, salt and soda to it. Shuffle. Then, in small portions, alternately pour grated cheese and flour into kefir, carefully kneading the dough and breaking the lumps each time. In the end, you get a pretty cool mass, which can easily be assembled with your hands and rolled into a beautiful ball.
Step 3: form the cakes.
Prepare a work surface by sprinkling it with a small amount of wheat flour. Divide the resulting ball from the dough into 5-7 equal parts. This can be done by stretching the mass into a sausage, and then cutting it, or simply pinching it piece by piece. Roll the resulting parts into balls.
Now take each small cone of dough and roll it with a rolling pin, turning it into a flat and thin cake. Moreover, this same cake should easily go to the bottom of your chosen pan, preferably without climbing to the edges. When all the cakes are formed, proceed to the next cooking step.
Step 4: fry the tortillas.
Put the pan on the fire, pour a little vegetable oil into it and heat to a very high temperature. As soon as the oil warms up, put a cake in it and reduce the heat.
Fry cheese cakes on low or medium heat until rosy on both sides. The main thing is to keep an eye on them all the time and do not let your products burn. So, for example, if the fire is too strong, the cakes will burn on the outside, but inside will remain moist.
Step 5: serve cakes with cheese on kefir.
Leave the finished cakes at room temperature for a while, so that they cool down and can be eaten without burning. Then serve your cheese cakes to the table. I usually use them instead of bread, making sandwiches, but without everything, just for tea, say, for afternoon tea or breakfast, they go just amazing.
Enjoy your meal!
- To prevent the cakes from weathering and drying, cover them with a kitchen towel.
- And so that the cheese cakes become more tender and find a particularly mouth-watering aroma, immediately after cooking, grease each with a small amount of butter.
- In addition to cheese, try adding various seasonings to the dough or just finely chopped fresh herbs, such as dill or cilantro.
