Bulgarian filo-pastry Banitza

How to make it:

In a bowl mix the eggs with the yogurt and add the oil. In another bowl mix the bicarbonate soda with the flour and then add them to the egg mixture. Use two sheets of filo pastry to make each roll. Brush the sheets with oil first and then sprinkle some of the egg mixture and feta cheese. Save some of the mixture to pour over the Banitza in the end. Roll the sprinkled sheets and place in a heavily oiled tin. After rolling all the sheets brush them with oil and pour with the rest of the mixture. Bake at 200 C until golden brown.
