You have probably heard of the Georgian signature dish Khachapuri. Khachapuri is a cheese bread pastry usually topped with melted cheese, butter or egg. There are different types of khachapuri but it is usually filled with Georgian Sulguni or Imeretian cheese.

Three of the most common varieties include the Imeretian khachapuri, shaped into a circular form, Adjarian khachapuri, the open boat shaped version topped with butter and a raw egg on top and Megrelian Khachapuri shaped into a circular form and
topped with melted cheese. Khachapuri is among the 100 best-rated dishes of TasteAtlas.

Apart from baking Khachapuri, the dish can be boiled. In order to cook a boiled Khachapuri, one should make dough balls filled with a blend of cheese and eggs. The balls then are boiled in hot water. The prepared dish is usually accompanied by sour cream.
