Sugar and Luke warm Milk and mix well. Keep aside for 5 minutes. Beat the eggs (keep aside 2 tbsp from this for brushing) and add to the flour mix. Also, add the softened butter. Lastly, pour the yeast mix to the flour and gently combine to make a sticky dough. Put it onto a floured surface and knead for some time, till the dough is smooth and soft. Rub little butter in your hands and roll the dough into a smooth ball and cover nicely and keep for one hour or more, till the dough is double the size.
Punch down the dough and divide the dough into two or three equal portions. Take one portion dust with flour and flatten/ roll out into a rectangle shape with around quarter inch thickness. Now with the help of a Cutter and ruler cut into triangular shapes as shown in the picture.
Chop the garlic finely and mix with 1 tbsp. melted butter and Oregano. Spread the butter garlic mix to the flattened triangles. Cut the cheese into small pieces. Place one block of cheese on the wider part and roll it upwards gently. Place in a greased tray with the pointed side down. Keep aside for 25 – 30 minutes to rise again.
