How to make Greek Style Spinach Spanakopita Recipe

  1. We begin making the Greek Style Spinach Spanakopita by kneading the dough for phyllo pastry, mix it along with water and knead it into a soft dough.

  2. Then to make the pie filling, heat a skillet, add oil, sauté garlic and onions till it is golden brown. In the mean while pre heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.

  3. Then add the spinach and crumbled paneer and sauté till it is cooked, season it with salt, thyme, oregano. Cook till is combined well.

  4. Roll out the phyllo dough to very thin, place it on the pie mold and trim off the extra dough from the edges, using a fork prick three times and bake it in the oven 5 minutes.

  5. In the mean while with the remaining dough, roll into a book fold for around 3 times and then finally roll it very thinly.

  6. Then add the filling into the pie shell after it is baked, Add the remaining rolled out dough on top of the pie and seal it. Bake the pie for about 45 minutes till it is golden brown. You can glaze it with honey just before 5 minutes of baking to give it a golden texture.
