Course – Main course / Appetizrer

Serves 4

Preparation time – 30 minutes   Cooking time – 10 minutes

2.5 cups flour

1 cup water

150 gr ground or minced beef or lamb

1 onion grated

10 pcs fresh parsley leaves finely chopped

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 teaspoon vinegar

5 tbsp water

2 cups vegetable oil

3 teaspoon salt

The dough is made from only flour, salt, and water. It should be quite soft but not sticky. For making dough combine flour, water and salt in a large bowl and mix them well. Close the bowl top with a wet cloth or towel and let it rest for about 20 minutes. For preparing the filling combine and mix well the ground or minced beef or/and lamb, grated onion, finely chopped parsley leaves, ground black pepper, salt, vinegar and water.

Cooking this dish is very easy but needs to be done carefully. First separate the dough into 16 equal small balls and roll out each with a thin rolling pin until it gets a thin round shape with about 20 cm in diameter. Add a big spoon of the filling and spread it on the half side of the dough. Close the empty side of the dough onto the filling and seal it by pressing with fingers or fork front. Do the same with the remaining dough pieces.

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet to medium-high heat in a fast way. Do not start cooking if the oil is not heated enough. At low heat the dough will absorb much more oil than should. Put 2-4 half-moon shaped dough with filling to the skillet and cook them until both sides get golden. Put a paper towel onto a serving plate and place the Black Sea Chebureks onto  it to drain the oil.

Traditionally Black Sea Cheburek is served and consumed hot and often eaten with hands as it has delicious juice inside. It goes well with the glass of red wine or Black Sea Ayran, or Black Sea Tea.
