Amazing puff cake with onions and hot pepper

I want to share with you a recipe for amazing puff cakes with onions and hot pepper. Homemade katlama is a national Kyrgyz dish that is served with a hot dish or just for tea. Scones are obtained in several layers, delicate inside, with a crispy crust. My family likes delicious puff cakes more than pies. I don’t know what the secret is, but the hand itself reaches for a piece of this crunchy charm.


  • 300 milliliters of warm water;
  • 500-550 grams of flour;
  • 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil;
  • 1 incomplete teaspoon of salt.

For filling:

  • 100 grams of butter;
  • onion;
  • any greens (to your taste);
  • hot peppers;
  • ground hot pepper.

Amazing puff cake with onions and hot pepper. Step by step recipe

  1. Pour water into a bowl for kneading dough, put a teaspoon of salt and mix well.
  2. Pour in vegetable oil (according to the recipe).
  3. Sift flour into a bowl through a sieve.
  4. Knead the dough with a spoon and then with your hands.
  5. Ready dough for puff cakes should be soft enough, smooth and elastic.
  6. Cover the bowl with a lid and leave the dough for 20 minutes.
  7. Tip. The dough can be covered with cling film or put in a bag.
  8. We lay down the dough into 4 parts, we round each of them.
  9. The blanks are covered with a film or a towel, left for 10 minutes.
  10. We will prepare the ingredients for the filling ourselves at this time. All components are laid out in different dishes.
  11. We cut one head of onion (you can take more, to your taste) into thin half rings.
  12. Finely chop the greens.
  13. Half the hot pepper, removing the seeds, cut into very small pieces.
  14. Pour hot (red) ground pepper into a separate bowl.
  15. On a table sprinkled with flour, roll each piece of dough into a very thin layer.
  16. Lubricate (silicone brush) with melted butter the resulting cake.
  17. Sprinkle it with hot ground pepper, slices of chopped onion, chopped herbs. Spread a little hot fresh pepper. We turn into a roll.
  18. We roll the roll in the form of a snail, press down with our hands and leave for 10 minutes.
  19. So do with all the blanks.
  20. We lay down the "snails" in a cake 0.5-0.7 mm thick.
  21. Tip. Puff cakes can be cooked without filling: grease with butter, roll into a roll, then with a snail. Let lie down for 10 minutes and roll into a cake.
  22. In a pan, heat a little vegetable oil (about 1 tablespoon) and spread the tortilla. Fry for three minutes on one side, under the lid.
  23. Turn over to the other side, add a little oil, cover with a lid and fry for another three minutes.
  24. Put the prepared cakes with onions on a plate, in a pile.

Preparing homemade cakes with onions is very simple and fast: I can do it in half an hour, so there is always fresh pastry for tea. Katlama can be cooked without filling, or made sweet: by adding sesame or poppy seeds inside. Try, experiment, and you will succeed.
