Ingredients
  

  • 200 gms feta cheese
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 750 gms thick yogurt
  • 4 nos eggs
  • 1 cup sliced green or black olives optional
  • 200 gms margarine
  • Basil leaves for garnish optional

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, blend the margarine with the eggs till it is light and fluffy.
  • Add in the yogurt and beat at a medium speed. I have used thick yogurt there.
  • The recipe requires Greek yogurt. Since Greek yogurt is not easily available here in Kolkata, I have used regular yogurt and hung it in a linen cloth for a couple of hours to drain out any liquid.
  • Sieve in the flour and the baking powder and fold gently. Then add the feta cheese and mix well.
  • There may be some crumbs of feta cheese left in the batter which does not mix well, which is okay. You may add some basil leaves and the olives as an option or any other flavor which you may like.
  • Grease a ten-inch cake tin with olive oil. Dust it with flour and pour in the batter.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven for 40 minutes at 180 degrees till the pie is golden brown and a skewer comes out clean when pierced.
  • Cut into wedges once cooled down and serve.
