  • With your hands, break down the greens and sauté them for 2-3 minutes, until wilted and reduced in volume. 
  • Remove the greens from the pot, add the salt, and let them drain in a colander for 15 minutes. Then, transfer them to a bowl
  • Crumble the feta cheese with your hands and add it to the bowl along with the spring onion, the dill, the maize flour, and the pepper. 
  • Mix and set aside until needed. 

For the dough

  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (390ο F) set to fan. 
  • Grease a 40x30 cm baking pan with olive oil.

  • Add the maize flour, the salt, and whisk until there is a uniform and smooth batter. 
  • Pour half of the batter into the baking pan. Cover with the filling and spread it over the whole baking pan. Cover the filling with the remaining batter and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden and thickened.
