You’ve probably never tried something like this before. This is a new masterpiece from the kitchen of Valentina Mashkovic. Everyone who tried the pastries was delighted by their taste, freshness, and softness.

“Make dough balls and let them rise in yogurt and oil, then a miracle will happen,” says Valentina, and she recommends this recipe to everyone because it is very easy and simple. Here’s what you need:

INGREDIENTS REQUIRED: 125 g of softened butter or margarine, 1 cube of fresh yeast (40 g), 1 egg, 1 small teaspoon of sugar, 300 ml of yogurt, 100 ml of water (all ingredients should be at room temperature), 3 tablespoons of flour, about 900 d flour, and 2 teaspoons of salt. FOR THE DRESSING: 100 ml of olive oil or melted butter, 200–250 ml of yogurt. And more: sesame or linseed for sprinkling.

PREPARATION: Put the softened butter in a deep bowl and spread it a little with a fork or spatula. Use your fingers to pop the fresh yeast and add one egg that has previously been at room temperature. Mix well, then add 1 teaspoon of sugar, yogurt, and water.

To make it easier and better to mix the ingredients, add about three tablespoons of flour. Then, whisk the mixture vigorously until it is homogeneous and free of lumps. Beat with a wire whisk or a dough mixer, whichever is easier for you. Add half of the total flour and 2 teaspoons of salt to this mixture.

Before beginning to add the remaining flour and start kneading by hand, mix everything together with a spoon or spatula until the flour has fully absorbed the liquids. You should get a medium-soft dough that does not stick to your hands. To get the right elasticity, finish the dough on a work surface.

Form a loaf and divide it into 12 approximately equal parts that you will shape into balls. Put enough olive oil or melted butter in a deep bowl to cover the bottom and grease the balls. Grease each ball of dough on all sides and leave it in the bowl.

Then pour yogurt that has been at room temperature on top of the balls. Pour evenly over all the balls, cover them with stretch-transparent foil, and let them rise for half an hour. Prepare the tray by lightly greasing it and lining it with baking paper in the meantime.

After half an hour, the balls of dough will have risen and absorbed almost all the yogurt, so carefully transfer them to the tray with a spoon and spatula. Beat one egg together with 2-3 tablespoons of the remaining yogurt, then spread them on top.

Sprinkle them with sesame seeds, then turn on the oven to heat up to 200 degrees (400 F). While the oven is heating up, the dough balls will rise a little more, so put them in the oven for about 20 minutes. See the details of the entire procedure HERE.
