recipe for hajapuri (spelling??)

s

One of my old girlfriends is Georgian (USSR). Her mom would make for me this hajapuri (sorry, it doesn't really transliterate from Georgian to English well). A flat bread with cheese. [Drool] I'd love to try and make it, but I have not been able to find any recipes yet. Any suggestions?

Recipes that do not call for butter are especially wanted.

    Puri is an Indian flat bread. Khaja Puri is a very sweet Indian dessert. I haven't been able to make the connection between the description and the product as I know it.
    You might have some success doing a Google search with "Indian Cheese Puri" ....

      I don't have a recipe, but I've seen it spelled khajapuri and khajapouri before too. Maybe try searching under those spellings?

      Story on recipe I think is this:

      However this is the Google search page with what looks like a more accurate spelling, but the recipes as you can see vary.

      Looks good!

          Nigella Lawson has a recipe in her book, Feast.

          I've made it and thought it was very good. It was thicker than the one shown in your picture. It has butter, though. I suppose you could replace the butter with a lesser amt. of shortening.
