LAHMACUN




First of all, you could make lahmacun with tortilla which is more practical or you can make your own dough which is more delicious:)
I made this one with tortillas but I will give the recipe for the dough.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 medium size onion
  • 2 medium size of tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 2 green pepper
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp of red pepper paste
  • 1/2 tsp of black pepper
  • salt
For the dough:

  • 10 tortilla breads
or:
  • 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1+1/2 cups of warm water
  • 1tbsp of yeast
Wash and drain tomatoes, pepper, onion, garlic, and parsley.Take onion, garlic and green pepper to the bowl of food processor and process it until finely chopped .Take them into a big mixing bowl.Put tomatoes to the food processor and process until smooth consistency and take the tomatoes to the mixing bowl too. Chop parsley and take it to the mixing bowl. Add meat, tomato paste, pepper paste, black pepper, and salt to the mixing bowl and knead them all until well combined.
Preheat the oven to 450F. Take a tortilla and spread 2-3 tbsp of mixing. Sprinkle some flour to the baking sheet and place the tortilla on it and bake it for 10-15 minutes.You can bake 2 to 3 tortilla at a time.
For making your own dough, mix flour, salt, and yeast in a bowl and add warm water slowly to make a soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 hour and knead it again until it is bubble free. Take a small part of dough (like a lemon) and roll it as large as tortilla. Before spreading the mixing you should bake the dough first for 5 minutes and then add the mixing.
You can serve lahmacun with ayran and onion salad.
