Ingredients for the Dough:

  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • A pinch of green onion leaves, chopped
  • 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)
  • 1 egg white
  • 3.5 cups of wheat flour (420 grams)


  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large skillet, sauté the finely chopped onions until they become translucent and slightly golden.
    • Add the chopped spinach, green onion leaves, and parsley to the skillet. Cook until the spinach is wilted and the moisture has mostly evaporated. Set aside to cool.
  2. Make the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the kefir, water, salt, and egg white. Stir well to mix.
    • Gradually add the flour to the liquid mixture, kneading continuously until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. If the dough feels too sticky, incorporate a bit more flour until it reaches the desired consistency.
  3. Assemble the Pastries:
    • Divide the dough into small balls, roughly the size of golf balls.
    • On a lightly floured surface, flatten each ball into a thin circle using a rolling pin.
    • Put a spoonful of the cooled spinach filling in the center of each dough circle.
    • Fold the dough over the filling to form a half-moon shape. Pinch the edges together to seal.
  4. Cook the Pastries:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly brush with oil.
    • Place the pastries in the skillet, and cook until golden brown on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the spinach stuffed pastries warm, with a side of yogurt or sour cream for dipping.
