For the Bread

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 2 teaspoon Olive Oil

For Filling

  • 1/2 cup Paneer / Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Butter

For Topping

  • Rosemary chopped
  • Pepper freshly crushed


Making the Dough

  • In a mixing bowl sift together flour, salt, sugar and yeast.
  • Microwave the milk and water for 30 secs until warm.
  • Slowly add the warm water and milk into the flours and knead a dough.
  • Add olive oil to the dough and knead for about 10 minutes.
  • Cover with cling wrap and let the dough rest for about 1 hour.

For the filling

  • Grate the cheddar and mozzarella and keep it aside.
  • Roast the paneer in butter and sprinkle salt and pepper. I was planning to get feta cheese for baking this. But skipped it at the last moment. Also since my kids are so fond of paneer, I thought this was better.
  • Mix all the cheese together and have it ready.

Baking the Khachapuri

  • Preheat oven to 210C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Remove the dough from refrigerator and divide it into two parts.
  • Since I was making mini versions, I made into 6 balls.
  • Place one part of the dough onto a floured surface.
  • Spread the dough into a big circle and then roll it on opposite sides until a boat shape forms.
  • Pinch the edges and seal tightly.
  • Fill the boats with cheese fillings. Brush the boats with butter. Sprinkle fresh chopped rosemary and black pepper.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm.
