recipe for hajapuri (spelling??)

  • 6

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.

  1. 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?

      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!

          1. 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.
