Hello Everyone!

“Manti” is some kind of boiled dumplings served with youghurt and butter sauce. It’s a very popular dish in Turkey. If you can make “Mantı” it means that you really are the chef of your kitchen. I will admit, it will be tough and tiring. But once you eat it, you will love love love!

Ingredients: (you can buy the ingredients directly by clicking on them)

For the dough:

3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup warm water
1 tsp. salt
1 egg

For the filling:

250 gr. (0,6 lb.) ground beef
1 medium onion, grated
Black pepper
Red pepper flakes
Salt

To serve:

Plain youghurt (you can add some garlic to it if you like)

For the butter sauce:

Butter
Tomato paste
Red pepper
Dried mints

Preparation:

The dough:
Take your 3 cup all purpose flour to a large container. Add your egg, 1 tsp. of salt and start kneading while you are adding the warm water little little. Your dough should be neither hard nor soft. It should have
earlobe consistency.
You can also make your dough in your stand mixer with a dough hook. Just add the water by little little and don’t let the dough would be to hard or soft.
Divide your dough in three, cover them with some towel and let it rest for 20 minutes.

The filling:
Take your 250 gr. (0,6 lb.) ground beef, 1 grated onion, black pepper, red pepper flakes and salt in a small bowl and knead a little until combined.

Preparation: (please see below video to visualize it better)
1. Roll each dough pieces separately until their thickness will be 1/13 inch. (2 mm.)
2. Cut 3/4 inch. (2 cm.) squares from your dough.
3. Put one pinch of your filling to all squares.
4. Seal all the squares from their corners. You need to do it before the dough gets dry otherwise it won’t stick.

Cooking:
You don’t need to cook all “manti” right away. You can keep them in your freezer for about a year.
When you will cook, boil some water on your pot, add some salt to your water and boil your “mantı” for about 20 minutes.

Butter sauce:
Make your sauce while boiling your “mantı”. Heat your butter in your pan. Add your tomato paste, red pepper, dried mints and fry it a little. Don’t forget to observe it because it can burn very quickly.

Serving:
Strain your mantı in a plate. Put some plain youghurt (or youghurt with garlic) on it, pour your sauce and voila! It’s ready!

Enjoy!
