Zagorski štrukli is known for centuries in the northwestern part of Croatia around Zagreb. They are prepared in countless ways – salty or sweet, baked or cooked. You can also find štrukli served as an appetizer, main dish or dessert. Since 2007 – the Ministry of Culture added it to the Croatian intangible cultural heritage list.

Steps

1
Done

Make some dough from the above ingredients. Leave the dough mixture for 20 to 30 minutes, and then stretch the dough to a round shape 1 mm thick. Flour the surface to which the dough is stretched. (as shown in the picture)

2
Done

Make a stuffing of cottage cheese, cream fraiche, egg and salt and fill it over the dough except the edges. (as shown in the picture)

3
Done

Twist the dough from the middle as shown in the picture until you make a circle. Carefully fold the edge and add water to stick well. Use the edge of a plate to cut it to the lengths of 10 centimetres. A plate is better than the knife because it will immediately stick the ends of the štrukli.

4
Done

In a medium-sized pan, put the water to boil, and add the štrukli. Add some oil and salt and leave to boil for a few minutes. Be sure to add the salt to the water as it works well for the pasta to have a firmer texture.

5
Done

Place the boiled in a baking pan, ideally of clay or ceramic, coat well with oil. Pour cream fraiche over the štrukli and put in a oven at 200 °C until it gets golden yellow colour.

6
Done

Serve as an appetiser. This is a common way of serving, but you can also use štrukle in other ways:
- just cooked as an appetiser with goulash or ham
- baked with bread crumbs
