It is translated into Russian as "Lahmajun-hazelnut" and is a miniature snack dish "for one tooth", the birthplace of which is considered to be the city of Tarsus in south-eastern Turkey. Tiny tortillas made of dough, covered with a mixture of minced meat and vegetables, are served in restaurants while waiting for a change of dishes. We will try to look at this dish from an everyday point of view and prepare delicious mini – lahmajuns in an ordinary kitchen, especially since all the necessary products are at our fingertips.
Pour warm water into the dough bowl, add sugar and yeast, pour out 0.5 cups of flour. Mix with a whisk and leave for 10 minutes. It should foam up.
Add salt, butter and flour carefully in parts. Adding flour, we look at the consistency of the dough, as soon as it stops sticking to your hands - there is enough flour. You should get an "earlobe". Cover the dough and leave it to approach. After 30 minutes, we grind it and let it come up again.
For the filling, we take all the vegetables about the same medium size. Finely chop them, add the remaining ingredients. From the greens I have: parsley, dill, mint. You can add hot pepper. Zira is the secret taste of Turkish minced meat dishes, it should be ground.
Carefully knead the minced meat. At this stage, we turn on the oven to heat up to 220-230 degrees.
From the dough, we tear off the pieces immediately on a baking sheet. I open by dividing by 2. From this amount, you will get two baking sheets of 16 pieces each.
We soak our fingers in vegetable oil and shape them into cakes with a diameter of 5-6 cm and a thickness of 2-3 mm.
Spread the filling evenly and immediately send it to the oven for 7 minutes at 230 degrees.
Served hot with lemon and parsley. Lemon and parsley extinguish the fat content and muffle the taste of onion and garlic in the filling.
After cooling, it can be stored in the freezer, heated in the oven, microwave or on the grill.
