500 g (1 lb 2 oz) flour
2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
500 g (1 lb 2 oz) cottage cheese
100 ml (1/2 cup) sour cream
1 tsp salt
TOPPING for boiled Strukli:
70 g (2.5 oz)butter
100 g (3.5 oz) breadcrumbs
TOPPING for baked Strukli:
300 ml (1 1/2 cup) cream
1 egg yolk
- DOUGH: Combine all ingredients. Knead the dough until bubbles start to form and dough becomes smooth. Coat the surface with oil, cover with a clean cloth and let rest about 30 minutes.
- FILLING: Combine all ingredients.
- ASSEMBLE: Spread flour on a large table-cloth. Roll the dough out thin* (on the table-cloth), brush with melted butter and fill with filling. Roll by filling the edge of the table-cloth on which the dough was rolled out. Cut into two inche pieces. You can either boil or bake strukli.
- a) BOILED STRUKLI: Place strukli in boiling water salted water and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Once they begin to float, remove with a slotted spoon.
Melt butter in a skillet over moderate heat; add the breadcrumbs and sauté until golden. Sprinkle the strukli with the breadcrumbs.b) BAKED STRUKLI: Combine cream and egg yolk. Place strukli into greased casserole dish. Pour over topping. Bake in 175 C (350 F) oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
*NOTE: There has been some misunderstanding about the process of making strukli. The dough needs to be VERY THIN (like strudel dough). I found two videos on YouTube to show you how to make it, until I make some photos myself.
