Lazy khachapuri - general principles of preparation
• Lazy khachapuri can be prepared from a ready-made puff semi-finished product - non-yeast dough or knead it yourself using quick recipes on sour cream, carbonated mineral water or kefir. Often such products are made from thin pita.
• They can be with and without filling. The cheese in this case is added to the dough. Lazy khachapuri is fried in a frying pan with little or no cream or vegetable fat. Often they are baked in the oven.
• As in the case of pizza, you can deviate from the canonical requirements and use several types of cheese for the filling. The taste of this dish will only benefit.
• In the traditional khachapuri, goat cheese is put as a filling, and we put different sorts of cheese in the lazy khachapuri: hard, suluguni, cheese or cottage cheese.
• Khachapuri is often served with first courses, meat or vegetable side dishes. They are just as good as a separate dish. The taste of hot khachapuri is significantly different from the cold. But also cooled, they are not less tasty.
