Ingredients: (4 servings)
• 3 sheets of “yufka” (philo dough)
• 1 glass oil
• Minced meat or white cheese filling
Prepare the desired filling. To make cigarette “böreks”:
Put the “yufkas” one on top of the other. Fold them in half and cut along the diameter. Then cut these semicircular layers into four equal parts. Thus you will have 24 equal triangular sheets. On the shorter end of each triangle put a small amoun of the desired filling. Fold the two sides over and roll it on like a cigarette. Dip the sharp end in a glass of water and stick it on.
To make triangular ones, called “amulet börek”:
Put the “yufkas” one on top of the other. Fold them in half and cut along the diameter. Then cut these smicircular layers into strips of 7-8 cm. wide and 22-24 cm. long. On one end of each strip, put a small amount of desired filling. Take the right corner of the strip and fold it diagonally over the filling to form a triangle. Then take the left corner and fold it on. Continue until the end of the strip, thus forming a small triangular parcel. Stick the end with water. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry them on medium heat, until they are golden brown on both sides. Drain well. Serve hot.
