Potato Phyllo Pie (including a vegan option) / Pita krumpiruša (uključujući i vegansku opciju)

Ever since my last success with homemade phyllo, I felt a strong urge to bake a potato filled pie. Because, who doesn’t like filling carbs with more carbs, right?

This dish can be easily made vegan if you replace the butter with coconut oil or margarine. Actually, any kind of mild-flavored oil would work, but you would need to add it gradually to dough while stretching it out.

METHOD:

Make the dough by mixing together one cup of flour, salt, oil and water. When everything is uniform, gradually start adding the remaining flour and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and no longer sticks to your hands. Tightly wrap it in cling foil and leave to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes knead the dough once more and divide into 6 even balls. Place a small piece of butter (or a vegan substitute) on each dough ball and gently massage it around the dough. You don’t want the butter penetrating the dough at this point, but you want the dough balls pretty evenly coated on all sides. Leave the dough to rest uncovered, again at room temperature, but this time for 30 minutes.

While the dough is resting prepare the filling by finely dicing the onion and shredding the potatoes on a box grater. Add in the remaining filling ingredients, stir well and set aside. There’s no need to precook the filling, as it’s going to get cooked through while the pie bakes.

Once the dough has rested for the second time, preheat the oven to 200°C and grease a round baking pan with a little bit of oil. Thin the dough balls out a bit with a rolling pin. Then use your hands, thread them underneath the dough and gently pull it out towards the outer edges. The dough should spread out into thin sheets easily and will be elastic enough not to break. Place three dough sheets on top of each other on the bottom of the greased pan, but leave the edges to hang out. Spread out the filling and then top with remaining three sheets.

Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to trim the thick edges off the dough, leaving just a centimeter or two of the overlap hanging off the pan. Pinch the remaining overlapping layers together and roll them into a neat fold.

Bake the pie for about 45 minutes, until crispy and deep golden brown. If the top starts browning too quickly, cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake covered. Uncover the pie for the last 5-10 minutes of baking to crisp it up and finish off.

Od kako sam zadnji puta uspješno napravila domaće kore za burek, imala sam veliku želju napraviti i pitu krumpirušu. Jer naravno, tko ne voli ugljikohidrate podebljati sa još malo ugljikohidrata, zar ne?

Ovo jelo veoma lako može biti vegansko ako maslac zamijenite sa kokosovim uljem ili margarinom. Također, možete upotrijebiti i bilo koje ulje neutralnog okusa, jedino ćete ga morati postepeno dodavati u tijesto kako ga budete razvlačili.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 1,06 kn po porciji / 6,37 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna, podijeljene (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

¾ šalice mlake vode (–)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

Za nadjev:

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

3 srednje velika krumpira (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti protvan za pečenje (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite tijesto tako da prvo pomiješate šalicu brašna sa solju, uljem i vodom. Kada dobijete jednoličnu masu, postepeno dodajte ostatak brašna, a tijesto mijesite dok ne bude glatko i prestane vam se lijepiti za ruke. Tijesto dobro umotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite da tako miruje na sobnoj temperaturi 20 minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta još jednom promijesite tijesto te ga podijelite u 6 jednakih loptica. Na svaku lopticu stavite mali komadić maslaca, pa ga rukama nježno umasirajte po tijestu. U ovom trenutku nije potrebno da maslac uđe u tijesto, već samo da je loptica sa svih strana dobro namašćena. Tijesto ostavite da miruje na sobnoj temperaturi nepokriveno, ovoga puta 30 minuta.

Dok tijesto odmara pripremite nadjev tako da fino nasjeckate luk, a krumpire naribate. U to dodajte preostale sastojke za nadjev te sve dobro izmiješajte i stavite na stranu. Nema potrebe da nadjev kuhate jer će se sve skuhati u bureku kako se on peče.

Kada je tijesto odmorilo i drugi puta, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C, a okrugli protvan namastite sa malo ulja. Loptice tijesta malo razvaljajte valjkom, a onda rukama razvucite u tanke krugove, i to tako da ruke podvučete pod tijesto i nježno ga povlačite prema van. Tijesto bi se trebalo dati lako razvući i biti će dovoljno elastično da ne puca. Tri plahte tijesta složite jednu na drugu, u pripremljeni protvan, s time da ostavite krajeve tijesta da vise preko ruba. Po tome ravnomjerno rasporedite nadjev te ga poklopite sa preostale tri plahte tijesta.

Kuhinjskim škarama ili oštrim nožem odrežite debele krajeve tijesta, s time da vam jedno centimetar-dva i dalje ostane viriti preko ruba kalupa. Taj višak stisnite skupa, pa sve uredno zamotajte.

Krumpirušu pecite oko 45 minuta, dok ne bude hrskava i zlatno-smeđa. Ako površina prenaglo potamni, pokrijte protvan aluminijskom folijom i pecite pokriveno. U tom slučaju krumpirušu otkrijte tek zadnjih 5-10 minuta pečenja kako bi se za kraj zahrskala.
