How to Make Gibanica? (Serbian Dishes - part 1)

Probably you have already tasted Serbian gibanica. It's similar to famous burek, but not completely the same. There are few versions of it. I will present you my favorite recipe for the gibanica. This version is called 'gužvara'. You may read the recipe in Serbian and in English; so, you may compare and learn some new words besides learning how to make this delicious dish. 

Potrebno Vam je: kore (1 pakovanje), 500 gr belog sira, šolja jogurta, čaša kisele vode, 5 jaja, 2 kašičice soli, decilitar ulja. 
Zagrejte rernu na 200 stepeni. Nauljite tepsiju. Stavite tri kore na dno. 
Pomešajte sir, jogurt, kiselu vodu, 4 jaja, 1,5 kašičicu soli i ulje i napravite kompaktnu smesu. 
Jednu po jednu koru umačite i smesu pa je zgužvajte i ređajte u tepsiju. Na kraju prelijte sve ostatkom smese. Stavite još dve kore preko svega. 
Umutite 1 jaje sa malo ulja i pola kašičice soli. Prelijte gibanicu.
Pecite u rerni oko 35 minuta.

You will need: kore (1 package) (I left this Serbian word, because there is no good English alternative; in Serbia ask for 'kore' and in other countries you may also find it in Turkish stores, they call it 'jufka'), 500 gr white cheese, cup of yogurt, glass of mineral water, 5 eggs, 2 teaspoons of salt, 1 deciliter of oil.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Take big baking dish and oil it a little bit. Place three kore on the bottom. 
Mix cheese, yogurt, mineral water, 4 eggs, 1,5 teaspoon of salt and oil, and make a compact mixture. 
Take one by one kore, crumple it, immerse it into mixture. Place them next to each other in baking dish. When you finish, pour the remains of mixture over everything. Put 2 kore on the top.
Whisk 1 egg with little bit of salt and oil. Pour that small mixture over gibanica. Then, it is ready for the oven.
Bake it in oven for about 35 minutes.
