Bread Lid

  • 2 cups flour, (270 g)

  1. Heat a medium-sized clay pot on high heat. You can use a cast-iron pot or any pot that can go into the oven.
  2. Melt the butter and olive oil.
  3. Add in the onion, potato, and carrot when the oil is hot.
  4. Add in the tomato and pepper paste and stir for a minute.
  5. Add in the lentil and pour the chicken stock and 1,5 L of water.
  6. Bring to boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  7. To make the bread lid combine the flour, water, and salt.
  8. Knead it for about six minutes until you have a smooth and elastic dough.
  9. You can use the dough immediately, but it is better if it rests for 15 minutes. Thus, it will roll out easily.
  10. Preheat your oven to 220 C (430 F) on upper and lower heat without a fan.
  11. After all, the ingredients are cooked blend the soup with an immersion blender until it his smooth.
  12. Until now we made a rich lentil soup. Now it is time to turn it into ezogelin. To make it, add the bulgur, salt, red pepper, black pepper, dry mint, and the left of the water into the pot.
  13. Finally, add in the butter for a shiny and creamy texture and let it simmer.
  14. Roll out the dough a little larger than the pot’s size/width
  15. Wet the edge of the pot with a wet kitchen cloth and cover the pot with the dough.
  16. Seal the dough with your hands and let the dough rise with the steam of the soup. If the dough is swelling slowly, it means steam is not leaking.
  17. Place it into the oven on a lower rack and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
  18. When the bread is crispy and brown your delicious ezogelin soup is ready to fulfill you. You can butter the bread to make it shiny.
