Cigar with Cottage Сheese


Cigar with cottage cheese is a traditional Turkish dish. It`s a delicious combination of unleavened dough and nutritious filling made of cottage cheese and greens. By the way, you may use tortilla instead of the dough. Cook these “cigars” and eat them as a snack.

  1. Take a big bowl and mix cottage cheese with salt and chopped dill.
  2. Cut the dough into long stripes and put the filling in the middle of each stripe. Roll it, forming a cigar.
  3. Fill the frying pan with vegetable oil and preheat it.
  4. Fry your cigars from both sides until they are golden.
  5. Take your pastry out of the pan and put on the paper towel in order to get rid of extra fat.

That`s it. Your delicious Turkish snack. You may replace cottage cheese with any other kinds of cheese, for example brynza. I recommend to serve this dish with sauce made of sour cream. It`s very tasty! Share the recipe with your friends.
