Caramelized Onion & Mozzarella Gozleme

I've previously posted this gozleme recipe here, but I have a new, delicious flavour to share!  I got the inspiration from seeing them sold at some markets recently and it didn't disappoint!  A perfect weekend meal to share with friends :-)

I've halved the original recipe here - it still makes 4 good-sized gozleme. Experiment with your own flavours and let me know!  The picture above is the caramel used onion as well as the spinach & feta - made, of course, with the freshest ingredients from Charlie's Fruit Market.

Olive oil spray
2 large onions, sliced
3 cloves black garlic, sliced (see footnote*)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
250g self-raising flour
200g Greek yoghurt
100g mozzarella cheese, grated

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and spray with oil.  Add onion and garlic and cook stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until quite soft and brown.  Add spices and cook for one minute.  Add vinegar and cook for about another 10 minutes, until dark and soft.

Meantime, make the dough:  mix the flour and yoghurt together.  Knead for 2-3 minutes on a floured surface.  Break into 4 equal pieces and roll into balls.  Use a rolling pin to roll into 25cm circles.  Spread onion mixture evenly onto half of each circle and sprinkle with mozzarella.  Fold over and press edges together.  Spray both sides with oil.

Preheat frying pan to medium.  Cook gozleme for a few minutes each side, until brown and "eyes" appear.  Slice and serve.

*Black garlic is an amazing product I'd never even heard of, until introduced to it by Charlie's Fruit Market.  It is similar to regular garlic, but has a much milder, sweeter taste.  It is also softer.  It's perfect for adding that extra flavour, without the strong hit of garlic or the after taste.  Give it a go!
