Crunchy Borek (Citir Borek)

MAIN
2 yufka
1/3 cup oil
½ cup water
1-2 cups bread crumbs 

For this recipe you can use one of these following fillings.

Feta cheese filling
1 cup crumbled feta cheese or ricotta cheese
¼ cup parsley or dill chopped (optional)
2 Tbsp yogurt (optional)
Put the ingredients in a bowl or plate and mix them.
 

Spinach filling 
2 cups chopped spinach
½ onion, chopped
1 Tbsp oil (canola/ sunflower/vegetable/corn/olive)
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper (optional)
Place the oil and chopped onions in a pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes on low-medium heat. Add the spinach, salt and cook for 4-6 minutes stirring occasionally. When it’s done, sprinkle with black pepper (optional).
 

Potato filling
1-2 medium potatoes, boiled and smashed
½ onion, chopped
½ Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp oil (canola/ sunflower/vegetable/corn/olive)
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper (optional)
¼ tsp cumin (optional)
In a pot boil the potatoes and smash them. Meanwhile in a pan place the oil and onion, and sauté for 2-3 minutes on low-medium heat. Then add the tomato paste, salt and smashed potatoes. Cook for 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally. Finally sprinkle the black pepper and cumin (optional)

Main Procedure
In a bowl mix the oil and water. Mix them with a whisk.
Place one layer yufka over a clean table or over the counter. Spread half of the oil-water mixture evenly on the surface and carefully cover the yufka with the other layer. Cut it into four equal quarters and then again cut each quarter into 3 equal pieces. You will have 12 yufka triangles. Place 1-2 Tbsp of the filling on the wider sides and fold the ends and roll it up as seen in the picture.
Grease an oven tray. Then, dip each piece first in the oil-water mixture and the bread crumbs. Make sure to cover each piece with bread crumbs. This will give the crunchiness. Arrange them all on the oven tray.
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) and bake for about 30-45 minutes, until they turn golden brown. Serve hot or warm.
This recipe makes 12 pieces of crunchy borek.
ENJOY
