Yogurt Cheese Fatayer (Pies)

A very light and delicious dish you can prepare easily at home and serve as an appetizer or side dish. I will post later how to make the yogurt cheese for the filling. 


Yogurt Cheese

Diced Onion

One Cup of Flour

Half Cup of Water

2 tbsp of Vegetable Oil 

Salt and Pepper

Frying Oil

How to Prepare:

Prepare your dough by mixing the flour, vegetable oil, salt and warm water, then kneed the mixture until it forms a dough. Let it rest for 30 minutes.

For the filling, mix the yogurt cheese, diced onion, salt and pepper.

Take a small piece of the dough and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough (put some flour on the rolling pin and surface so the dough does not stick) in a circular shape – about two inches in circumference.

Take one tablespoon of the cheese mixture and place in the middle of the dough.

Wrap the dough around the cheese mixture in a “triangle shape.”

Repeat this until all of the materials are finished.

Separate with cling wrap to prevent from sticking together.


Heat some frying oil to deep fry the triangles until they are golden.
