PIRASALI BÖREK




BOREK WITH LEEKS

This borek is delicious. I definitely suggest it to anyone.

Ingredients:

Filling:
  • 1 bunch of leeks
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese ( or same amount of ricotta cheese )
  • 3 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • salt
Sauce:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
Topping:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • sesame seeds
For preparing filling; cut off top of leeks, wash, and drain. Cut leeks in half lengthwise and slice them thinly. Wash leek one more time after chopping. Wash, drain, and chop parsley too. Take vegetable oil and leek in a large skillet and turn the heat on medium high. Cook it until leek absorbs all of its juice. Turn the heat off. Let it cool for 20 minutes. Take both leeks and parsley in a bowl. Add cheese into the bowl and mix it. Set a side.
For sauce; mix egg white, milk, and vegetable oil.
Take one of fillo sheets, brush with one tbsp of sauce over the surface of fillo. Place one tbsp of filling on top, fold the edges and roll. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Place them on a baking tray. Preheat the oven 35OF. Bake for 30 minutes or boreks are just golden brown.

Hi, I tried these yesterday along with some other borek recipes on your site (well, the fillings of those recipes, but I made rolls like this of them all) and they were great! Great party food as well. Thank you for sharing.
