For the Dough:

  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • A handful of finely chopped green onion tops
  • 500 grams of spinach, chopped
  • A pinch of parsley, chopped
  • 1 glass of kefir (200ml)
  • 1 tea glass of water (90ml)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (8 grams)
  • 500 grams all-purpose flour (approx. 4 cups)


  1. Prepare the Filling
    • In a large pan, sauté the finely chopped onions and green onion leaves in a bit of oil over medium heat until they are soft and translucent.
    • Add the chopped spinach and cook until wilted. This should take about 5 minutes.
    • Stir in the chopped parsley and season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Remove the pan from heat and let the filling cool.
  2. Prepare the Dough
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the kefir, water, and salt.
    • Gradually add the flour to the wet ingredients, mixing continuously until a dough forms.
    • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
    • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  3. Assemble the Pastries
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Divide the dough into equal-sized balls, depending on how large you want your pastries to be.
    • Roll each ball of dough into a flat circle on a floured surface.
    • Place a spoonful of the spinach filling in the center of each dough circle.
    • Fold the dough over the filling to form a half-moon shape and press the edges to seal. For a decorative finish, use a fork to press down the edges.
  4. Bake the Pastries
    • Arrange the filled pastries on the prepped baking sheet.
    • Brush the tops of the pastries with a bit of oil or an egg wash for a golden finish.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown and crispy.
  5. Serve
    • Remove the pastries from the oven and let them cool slightly on a wire rack.
