Sigara 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 storeIn 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
Now fold & roll.
Fold the two corners in and the start rolling at the end where you placed the ingredients.
- 400 gr. salted turkish feta cheese (or any feta cheese)
- 1/2 bunch of parsley
- 300 gr. sucuk (or sausage)
- tomaten paste
- pepper (optional)
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.
