1 paket of fillo pastry
 2-3 zucchinis, grated approximately 4 cups of grated zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped dill
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint or 3 tbsp dry mint flakes
1/2 cup crumbled Turkish white cheese or feta
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp or less black pepper
salt (depending on how salty the cheese is)
1 tsp spicy red pepper flakes (optional)
3 eggs
  For brushing Filo
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup plain yogurt


Take out the filo out of fridge 1 hour before you start, Mix well all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl.
Set aside for 10-15 minutes. It will be a juicy mixture. Squeeze the mixture and pour that excessive juice, into a smaller bowl. Add 3 tbsp olive oil and 1/2 cup yogurt into the juice and mix well. You will use this to,brush filo. Place a filo, wide side facing you, on the counter. Brush it with the mixture and put another filo on, top and brush it, too. Since filo are too thin, it's better to use two at a time).Place filling ~one seventh of, zucchini filling on the long side of filo and roll up to make a long cigar. Grease, oven tray.Hold one end of the long cigar and coil roll around to form a spiral shape as in the picture above.Repeat brushing, filling, rolling, and coiling until there's no more filling. Pour whatever juice left in the, brushing and filling bowls on the börek. Bake in a preheated oven at 180c,220c until golden brown.
Approximately 50 minutes. Cut into triangle slices. Serve with tea or soda for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Enjoy
