Antal 12 pieces


  • 250 g flour, maybe a bit more
  • 12 g fresh yeast
  • ½ cup handwarm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt
  • ½ tsp salt


  • 250 g meat, lamb, beef, chicken
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1 Sivri pebber, Long green turkish pebber
  • 1 large handful italian parsley
  • ½ tsp chili pebber, "pul biber"
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp peppermint
  • salt and pebber

Sådan gør du

  • 1: Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk
    2: Mix the other ingredients into a uniform dough. Cover the bowl with a bag and let the dough rise for an hour
    3: First chop the onion and parsley in a mini chopper. Put tomato and pepper in and chop again until it all turns into small pieces (but not fine mash !!)
    4: Mix all the ingredients together with the meat and spices. Leave it to rest while the dough rises.
    5: Turn on the oven at 200 degrees hot air.
    6: Divide the dough into 12 equal buns.
    7: Press each bun flat with your hands - about 10 × 15 cm. Place a good tbsp of the filling on one half and fold the other one over. Press the joints together with a fork on both the front and back of the bun. Then the filling will stay inside and at the same time you get a nice pattern.
    8: Place the breads on two baking sheets with baking paper. Brush them with a whipped egg.
    9: Bake them in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes


If you like, the filling can easily be replaced with eg. feta cheese mixed with a little chopped onion, dill and parsley as well as 1 teaspoon of chili.
Or you can of course bake a double portion - one of each filling.
The breads are great for the freezer.
