How to Make Yarimca (Fried Dough With Filling)
- Filling Ingredients:
200 gr (1/2 lb) feta cheese
1/3 cup fresh parsley /dill, finely chopped
5-6 potatoes, boiled and smashed
1 tsp dried mint
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
- Mix all the main ingredients by adding the water slowly. Knead, till the dough is set (the right consistency when it doesn’t stick anymore). Place the dough on a floured surface and cut it into two pieces. Roll each piece in the thickness of your wrist.
Then cut the rolls in 1 inch wide pieces. On the floured surface, flatten the dough with your hands or a roller (for about ¼ inch thickness). In the center of the flattened dough, place 1 tsp of filling, spread it and close in the shape of half moon. Compress the edges tightly. Prepare all the dough in the same way and place them on a paper towel, making some room for not to stick each other.
Sizzle the oil in a pan and fry both sides of the dough pieces till they turn to golden brown. Serve the Yarimcas warm.
