5 eggs
2 Tbsp yogurt
1 Tbsp salt to taste
4 Tbsp water

For boiling:
1 Tbsp salt to taste
¼ cup olive oil
1 pot cold water
1 pot boiling water

For filling and top:
½ lb ricotta/ feta cheese
1 egg
150 gr butter, melted
1 Tbsp yogurt
1 Tbsp olive oil

Mix all the dough ingredients, adding flour slowly. Knead until the dough becomes as soft as your ear lobes. Leave the dough for a rest for about 30 minutes. Then knead again and divide into 10 equal pieces. With the help of a rolling pin flatten each piece as thin as you can go.
Fill up the 2/3 of a big pot and add 1 Tbsp salt and ¼ cup olive oil. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile prepare a big pot of cold water. Place each piece of flattened dough into boiling water and boil for 10-15 seconds. Immediately place the boiled flattened dough inside the cold water pot. Rinse and squeeze gently in your hands. If the cold water gets warm change it with cold water regularly.
Grease a big Pyrex dish and place the cold flattened dough and spread it evenly over the Pyrex. Brush all over it with melted butter and place the other piece on top and do the same procedure for 4 pieces. After brushing the fourth piece, spread half of the cheese evenly and continue doing the previous procedure until the seventh piece. Brush the seventh piece with butter and spread the remaining cheese all over. Place the remaining 3 dough pieces and brush them with butter as well.
Mix the egg, yogurt and olive oil. Spread this mixture all over the top of the water borek. Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) and bake for until the top gets light brown (for about 30-40 minutes). When it’s baked take it out and let it cool for a few hours.
Serve it either warm or cool.
