Cig Borek

For the dough:
25-30 gr fresh active yeast/7 gr instant yeast
2 cups lukewarm water
1 tbsp salt
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp sugar
5-6 cups flour

For the filling:
200-250 gr (1/2 lb) lean ground meat
1 big onion, chopped finely/grated
1 tsp salt to taste
½ cup water
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp paprika
½ cup canola oil for frying

Place the lukewarm water, sugar and the yeast into a bowl. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and the yeast.Then, add salt, oil and flour, knead for 8-10 minutes, till dough becomes elastic and non sticky. Place a plastic wrap or cloth over the dough (see the picture) and let it rest for 2 to 4 hours in a warm place, till it rises up to double its volume (see the picture).Place dough on the counter and punch to release air. Then sprinkle some flour on the counter and cut it into 16-18 pieces. Then with a roller pin flatten every piece about 7-8 inches in diameter.
Meanwhile mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl. And then divide the filling into 16-18(the number of dough pieces you’ve got, approximately 1-2 tbsp each). Then spread the filling over half side of flattened dough (see the picture). Fold the other half over and stick the ends, making pressure with your finger tips (see the picture). Also you can use pizza roller for cutting the edges. Do the same procedure to all dough pieces.
In a frying pan, sizzle oil and fry both sides of the boreks till they turn to golden brown. Place a paper towel over a pot and transfer the fried boreks into it and close the lid to keep them warm and soft.
You can serve Cig Borek with yogurt or ayran.
P.S: Do not use metal container when kneading or resting the dough. Metal spoils the texture of dough.
