PROJARA (PIE) WITH YOGURT AND CHEESE

Proja is a Macedonian dish made of corn flour. It's also widely prepared all over Balkan countries. It used to be very popular during poverty period after WW2, but today it is used as an everyday meal. The fancier variant of proja is called projara, which includes eggs, yogurt and flour.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 baking powder
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • 200 g of cheese
Preparation:

  1. Mix the eggs are salt and sugar, then add all the other ingredients to obtain a compact mixture. If it's very thick, add a little milk. 
  2. Then add the cheese, mix nice and pour in greased pan and bake. Bake at 220 degrees for about half an hour. 
  3. Optionally you can add spinach, leeks, olives, ham. I've tried different combinations and they are always very tasty.

The glass of the measure is 250 ml.
Combine with fermented milk or yogurt.

Enjoy!
