Potato Phyllo Pie

Borek with Potato |

Potato Phyllo Pie is easy to make yet it is one of the yummiest savory pies.



To stick these phyllo sheets

For its filling

For garnish


  1. Boil the potatoes in a pot full of water until they get very soft. You can check them with a fork, insert it in one of the potatoes, if it’s soft enough, that’s ok. Then peel the potatoes and chop them in small pieces. Put it aside.
  2. Chop the onion and sauté it until golden. Add tomato/pepper paste into it and stir. Put the boiled and chopped potatoes into it, sprinkle salt and other spices and sauté all of them for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Take it from heat and let it cool.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C (356F).
  4. Now we’ll prepare the mixture to stick the phyllo sheets. Mix yogurt, oil and egg until well combined. This mixture prevents the borek from splitting off.
  5. Lay one of the phyllo sheets on an oven tray. Then spread the yogurt mixture on it with a brush. If the sheet is too big for the tray, you can tear it into two pieces and then lay it on the tray. It doesn’t need to be perfect in shape. Then lay another sheet on this one. Spread some yogurt mixture again. Now put some filling mixture (not much as you’ll put the rest soon).
  6. Lay another sheet on potatoes and spread yogurt mixture again. Now put the rest of the potatoes and sprinkle grated yellow cheese on it. Lay the last two sheets on them spreading yogurt mixture between them. Finally spread all the mixture on top of it to have a well cooked borek. Cut it into squares. And sprinkle some nigella sativa on it. Cook it for about 40 minutes.
