Hungarian Cheese Puff


250 gram all purpose flour

3.5 gram yeast. ( I used instant, If your using dry yeast please see the Note below at the end of the recipe to see how to use the dry yeast. )

75 ml of warm water

1/2  Tbsp salt

0.25 cup of plain yogurt

125 gram grated cheese ( mixture of smoked cheese and cheddar cheese )


Mix the flour,salt and butter together then add the yogurt and mix it once again and now finally add the yeast and knead the for about 10 to 15 mins. First, the dough will be very sticky and wet but just keep kneading the dough.  If even after 15 mins of kneading the dough hasn’t come together then probably you can add more flour and once the dough is ready, cover the dough with cloth and set it aside for 30 mins in warm place.

After 30 mins roll the dough out and bring the left side and right side to the center then the bottom side to the center and the upper side on the top of bottom side thus forming a rectangle shape. Now once again cover it with the cloth and let it rest for 30 mins. Now after 30 mins roll the dough again and  repeat the same technique of folding and then  roll the dough one more time and then cut it into circles with the help of cookie cutter. Place the circles ( Puff ) on the baking sheet in a tray.. Grease the top of the puff then sprinkle some salt, pepper and cheese and bake it in the oven for 15 mins at 190 degree Celsius. Once they cool down serve they are ready to serve.


If you are using dry yeast, then in that case soak the dry active yeast in 2 to 3 tbsp lukewarm water and add little amount of sugar in it and keep it aside for 10 mins and yeast will be activated. And then you can add the required amount of yeast to dough.
