Dust dough with flour, divide into 2 and roll out 2 rectangles. On each rectangle put filling in the middle part, cut strips on the sides,fold first upper and lower part (to protect filling from running out) and start pleating - see foto.

Pletenica Filovana Sirom

Potrebno:
- Tijesto
1 solja vode
2 kasike maslinovog ulja
2 solje brasna obicnog
1 solja brasna od punog zrna
1 kasicica soli
1 kasicica secera
1,5 kasicica kvasca
- Filovanje
300 gr sira (rikota - mladi sir)
1 jaje
1 kasicica soli
nekoliko listova bosiljka, sjeckanog (po zelji)
Nacin:
Umijesite tijesto kao za bilo koje dizano i ostavite odmarati.
Pripremite filovanje - pomijesajte sir dobro sa ostalim sastojcima.
Kada je tijesto nadoslo, podijelite na 2 i razvaljajte svaki dio u pravougaonik. Na sredinu svakog pravougaonika, stavite polovicu filovanja, prorezite trake sa strane. Najprije zavrnite donju i gornju stranu, kako filovanje ne bi curilo, zatim pocnite prebacivati trake sa svake strane na suprotnu - fotografija!
Pecite 20 minuta na 180*C.
Mozete napraviti i sasvim male (kifle).
