  • Knead the dough well and divide it into 11 equal meringues and roll the meringues.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave for half an hour.
  • Take the butter and oil in a large pan.

  • Divide the 11-ply dough into four and pour the yogurt in the middle. Bon Appetit!

In some regions, yoghurt is not poured over the Kayseri Yaglama. The phyllo with minced meat is rolled and dipped in yoghurt and consumed. You may not like to eat by hand, but be sure, it is much more fun to consume this way…
As for the calorie calculation, I can say that a plate of Kayseri Yaglama is 450 calories on average…
