Turkish Mince Meat Pita

When I saw Wendy post this in her blog, I am so attracted by the unique shape of this pita bread. I am very busy at that moment and I really worried that I don't have time to try this out. Just yesterday I decided to try this out. Rush out to grab some mince beef, tomato and parsley. Too bad can't get fresh parsley so I used the dried ones. I am glad that I try this out the very last minutes. This is so yummy.. 
I love this  AFF event, I always learn new dishes from this event.  Just like the pervious MFF events.
I think i over baked it a little cause the yolk was over cooked but we don't mind at all, it is just very very delicious. The next time i make this i will bake it for 20 minutes.

Turkish Minced Meat Pita

source: wendyinkk
Yield: 1 large pide

Pide dough:
125g flour (I used bread flour.)
20g water + 1/2 tsp instant yeast
20g natural yoghurt
20g milk (I used 30g.)
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
olive oil for brushing on after baked 

100g minced meat
1 tomato, seeds removed, diced
2 tbsp onion
2 tbsp chopped parsley (I used dried parsley)
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
1 egg (for topping)

1) Dissolve yeast in water. Combine all ingredients for pastry & knead using hand for 2 minutes. Leave to proof (covered) for 2 hours.  

2) 30 minutes before end of proofing, combine all ingredients for  filling, except egg, & place the mixture in a colander to drain any liquid.

3) Preheat oven at 180 (fan) or 200 deg C.

4) Roll out dough into an oval, 5mm thick. Place dough on a baking paper which is placed on a dark-coloured baking tray. Put filling on the dough, leaving 1-inch border. Fold the sides in & pinch the ends together. Crack the egg onto the filling.

4) Bake for 30 minutes, until the dough turns golden brown. Remove pita from oven & brush the crust with olive oil. Serve warm.
