I have to admit this weeks’ challenge was a pretty easy one. Sigara böregi are made in a flash with just a few ingredients – at least if you don’t make the dough yourself. 🙂
Since yufka (or filo) dough is very difficult to prepare, it makes sense to buy it. So for the sigara böregi you just have to lay out the dough, fill it and bake it. Easy! We enjoyed our little feta cheese rolls with a garlic dip. Delicious!
Ingredients (for about small 15 rolls):
175 grams yufka or filo/phyllo dough
200 grams feta cheese
a good amount of parsley
Lay out the yufka dough about 10 minutes before using it.
Crumble feta cheese into small pieces (I used a fork).
Wash and cut up parsley and add to the feta cheese.
Add some salt and pepper if you like and knead everything well together, using your hands.
Take a small amout of cheese mix and lay it along the shorter side of the dough leaving some room left and right.
Fold over the left and right side and then roll the whole thing up.
Take a bit of water and wet the end of the roll in order to make the dough stick.
Take a frying pan and add a good amount of oil and heat it up. (For a fat free version you could also bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes.)
Fry rolls until crispy and golden brown.
The whole rolling up business is a bit diffcult to explain in writing. I hope the pictures are helpful!
