Flija with saç

Flija made with “saç” is a specialty from the traditional Albanian cuisine, that is mostly prepared in mountainous areas. It is most certainly one of the typical Kosovar dishes that everyone local will recommend.

Ingredients

Batter

2 litres of water

2 spoons of salt

2 jars of cream cheese

Flija made with “saç” is a specialty from the traditional Albanian cuisine, that is mostly prepared in mountainous areas. It is most certainly one of the typical Kosovar dishes that everyone local will recommend. Flija could be considered a pie, however, mostly it is plain and is layered like a pack of pancakes (crepes). It is baked with cinders: the batter put on a pie-pan is covered with a “saç”- a metal dome over which hot cinders are placed to bake the dough.

The saç (the lid) warmed on cinders, is put on the pie-pan which contains the layered batter of the flija. While you’re preparing the batter you’ll notice it looks much like pancake or crepes batter. After pouring each layer on the pie-pan you coat the layer with melted cream cheese and bake it individually under the saç. The process is long, but the results are delicious!
Flija is served with sour milk or yoghurt, pickled vegetables, cheese, honey, jam or ajvar (a spicy homemade spread ).
