Su Boregi – Turkish Cheese Lasagne (Ottoman Cuisine) By Pinar From Sales

This borek is very famous all-over Turkey, especially in the Black Sea Region, in the north. The crispy outer layers, squeaky soft layers of lasagne-like sheets, warm and melting cheese taste in-between might be the reason for its popularity.

For making the layers of lasagne:

4 eggs (MIS103: Ousters Lion Eggs)

1 teaspoon of salt

Step 3:

The rolling pin should like picture roll each piece the same size as your tray.

Step 5:

Boil each pastry sheets individually for one or two minutes in salted boiling water.

Step 6:

Than plunge into a bowl of cold water.

Step 7:

Drain and layer the sheets in a baking tray.

    Its took me quite some time to rethink my self after trying this very authentic dish,some people say this dish is legendary but i say its pure bliss. First the presentation is something to be mesmorised as it looks beautiful, secondly the smell really gets you going as it opens up your senses, taste wise is something on the cool side of things as it really melts in your mouth giving you that summer breeze and clover texture, on the pallet i taste hints of chocolate and nut with wild berry but over all this is something special. BEST OF LUCK PINAR……
