Full Recipe:


For the dough:

  • 1 teaspoon sugar (10g)
  • 1 packet dry yeast (10g)
  • 1 cup warm milk (200ml)
  • 1 cup warm water (200ml)
  • 1 tea glass of oil (100ml)
  • 5 cups flour (600g)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (8g)

For the filling:

  • 1/2 tea glass of oil (50ml)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Ground red pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste

For the topping:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of oil



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, dry yeast, warm milk, and warm water. Stir well and let it sit for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture becomes frothy.
  2. Add the oil, flour, and salt to the yeast mixture. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Cover the dough with a clean cloth and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
  3. While the dough is rising, prepare the filling. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent. Add the mashed potatoes, tomato paste, black pepper, ground red pepper, and salt. Mix well and cook for a few more minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  5. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into two equal parts. Roll out each part into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Spread the potato filling evenly over one of the dough rectangles, leaving a small border around the edges. Place the other dough rectangle on top and press the edges to seal.
  7. Transfer the filled dough to a greased baking sheet. Mix the egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of oil, and brush this mixture over the top of the dough.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown on top.
  9. Allow the bread to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Enjoy your delicious homemade potato bread!
