Ela’s Gözleme

According to Wikipedia, Gözleme are tradional Turkish pastries made of hand-rolled dough filled with a variety of options that are then sealed and cooked over a griddle.

According to me, these are mighty tasty stuffed yummy things made by a trio of lovely resilient ladies on Ridley Rd Market.

I opted for the spinach and cheese Gözleme for the handsome price of £2.00, very reasonable because they are filling, BIG in size and in savoury tastiness and lovely to bite into on a frosty day. Lucky for me I live close enough to the market to be able to eat them (whilst till warm) at home.

I am sure that these are probably quite simple to make. However, whatever I might be able to make in my kitchen will lack the soul and years of learned experience of the Gözleme made in Ela’s little outdoor kitchen.
