  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the kefir with one egg, salt, sugar, and vegetable oil. Mix well until everything is evenly incorporated.
    • Sift in the flour and baking powder, gradually mixing until a soft, manageable dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour until it’s easy to handle.
  2. Make the Cheese Filling:
    • In a separate bowl, mix the shredded cheese with a pinch of salt. Feel free to use mozzarella or any other cheese you prefer for a melty, flavorful filling.
  3. Form the Khachapuri:
    • Divide the dough into equal portions, rolling each into a ball. On a floured surface, flatten each ball into a circle. Place a generous amount of cheese filling in the center of each circle.
    • Fold the edges over the cheese, pinching them together to seal and form a stuffed pocket. Gently flatten the stuffed dough to form a filled pancake shape.
  4. Cook:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place the khachapuri in the skillet, cooking for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and the cheese inside has melted. You may brush the khachapuri with the remaining beaten egg for a glossy finish during the last minute of cooking.
  5. Serve Hot:
    • Enjoy your Kefir Khachapuri hot off the skillet, perfect as a quick snack, breakfast, or a comforting meal. The combination of tangy kefir dough and warm, melted cheese is irresistible.
