Sigara Böregi: Delicious Turkish Treat

Sigara Böregi: Delicious Turkish TreatSigara Böregi: Delicious Turkish Treat is one of my favourite turkish foods to prepare. It is really yummy and also perfect for parties or picnics. Since I live in Germany I don’t find many chances to eat it unless I prepare them my self. Luckily it is easy to find a turkish grocery in Europe. Although Yufka (paper thin pastry dough) is not as good as the ones from Turkey. If you can not find these ingredients I included alternatives.

Here is the photo of my ingredients which I bought in Germany from the turkish grocery storeSigara Böregi: Delicious Turkish TreatIn Turkey this treat is mainly filled with feta cheese but I like to make it with sucuk (or sujuk: spicy turkish sausage) And originally they are fried but I bake them.


  • 30 layers of triangle Yufka (or phyllo dough: it is thinner than yufka so you should use 2 or 3 layers of phyllo dough instead of yufka)

Yufka should be in triangle form. If you have big round dough cut it into half and then cut each half into equal 3 pieces.

  • 1 egg
  • 200 gr yogurt (or greek yogurt)
  • 1 table spoon olive oil

Mix them well in a bowl and spread some on the yufka pastry leaves with a brush.Sigara Böregi: Delicious Turkish TreatThen put some fillings on round end of the dough.

Now fold & roll.

Fold the two corners in and the start rolling at the end where you placed the ingredients.

In the mean while preheat oven to 170°C and cover the baking tray with baking paper or some sort of teflon paper.

After you roll all the pastry leaves put them on a baking tray. Spread egg yolk on them pastry. (if you like you can spread olive oil and then egg yolk. I don’t like to use oil too much)

Afterwards I added black cumin seeds and sesame to differentiate the cheese rolls and sujuk rolls.
