Susamli Patetes Poğaça / Turkish pastry filled with potato

Pogačice (diminutive of pogača) is a type of puff pastry. PogačaPoğaça or Pogacha (Cyrillic: Πогача) is a type of pastry eaten inBosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia (in Serbia, traditional in Belgrade bakeries),Montenegro, Hungary, Greece (where its called Bogatsa Μπογατσα) and Turkey (where it is called poğaça) with variations. It is calledpogatschen in Austria. Pogača is sometimes served hot as an appetizer instead of bread. Hot pogača filled with sour cream (or fetacheese in Turkey and Bulgaria) is considered a particularly delicious specialty.

You can vary this Poğaça stuffing with your other favorite filling, such as cheese, sausage or even minced meat or chicken (sometimes I fill it with chicken mushrooms too). It's great menu for your kid's lunch box. Or just carry out for brunch or tea break in husband's office.

Ingredients (make about 15 pieces)
Ingredients A:
 3 tablespoons flour
 1 cup warm milk
 1 package (10 grams) dry yeast
 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
Ingredients B:
 3 cups flour (few spoon more if necessary)
 1 teaspoon salt
 1 egg, beaten.
 ½ cup olive oil
 ½ ~ ¾ cup warm water
Ingredients C:
 2 medium-size potatoes. Steamed / boiled and mashed.
 ± 150 g cheddar cheese. grated/ shaved.
 ½ bunch dill or parsley, finely chopped (optional)
 Salt to taste.
 Combine all ingredients C and mix well as filling/ stuffing. Set aside.
Ingredients D (for topping):
 2 tablespoons molasses, mixed with 1 tablespoon water.
 Sesame.

1) Mix all ingredients A and mix well as a starter. Cover with towel and let stand in warm place until fluffy (I need ± 20 minutes)
2) Mix all ingredients B (except warm water). Mix in the starter (ingredients A) and knead until smooth. If necessary add warm water little by little while knead the dough until smooth and not sticky at your hand (or you can use your electric kneading mixer). Cover with plastic wrap or towel and rest the dough in warm place until doubles (I need ± 45 minutes)
3) Hit the dough to remove air and divide them into 13 ~ 15 small balls. Fill with stuffing mixture and shape round oval form (or according to your taste). Cover with towel and let them rest again about 30 minutes.
4) preheat oven to 180 º C. Place dough on baking sheet cover with baking paper or coated with margarine. Grease top of each dough with molasses mixture and sprinkle with sesame. Bake 15 ~ 20 minutes or until golden color. 
 Rocognize your own oven's condition is recommended. Different size and condition gives 
different heat result.
