How to Make Easy Traditional Greek Dishes : How to Roll Filo Dough for Greek Dishes


Hi everybody my name is J and I’m talking
on behalf of Expert Village and we are going to move on with the layering process of the
spanakopita. What I’m going to do is I’m going to get this mixture that we did and we are
going to spread it on my filo dough which I have on a silicon pad on the baking sheet
that i;m going to stick inside of my oven. So you want to get your mixture make sure
it is nice and blended. If it is to watery you can grab a napkin and kind of soak up
a lot of that stuff. That is the reason I don’t use the whole egg because the egg completely
makes it to watery for what I’m trying to do. What I’m going to do is I’m going to spread
my mixture flat. I’m going to roll this like somebody would
roll sushi the reasoning I’m doing this is for presentation purposes. What you do is
roll over it once, roll over it again, and you just want to keep on going. Get rid of
all the excess juice coming from your olive oil and butter and some of it is coming from
that egg just want to pat that out just a little bit. Keep on rolling your spanakopita.
Eh original way to do spanakopita is to make it in a four layer mixture then four layer
on top and then it comes out kind of like a pie. You want to keep on rolling, keep on
rolling until you get a nice thick area. If you have access dough like this I’m going
to go ahead and cut this and now we got ourselves a spanakopita. The ends you just want to roll
them over just like we did and like that and that is how you roll your spanakopita. That
is it.
