-The name Gozleme originates from the word "eye" (in Turkish goz means eye). When you start to cook it, you will see some little brown round shaped spots on it, which gives Gozleme its name)

- You can also prepare a much simpler version by using ready yufka pastries available from Turkish grocery shops.
