This delicious and yummy Manti (Turkish Ravioli) recipe is much sweeter. The perfect mix of yogurt, dough, and minced meat!
FOR THE DOUGH
3 cups of flour
1 cup of warm water
1 tsp salt
FOR THE INSIDE
250 gr ground beef
1 medium-sized onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp chili flakes
FOR THE SAUCE
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp tomato paste
FOR THE DRESSING
A bowl of yogurt
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp dried peppermint
1/2 tsp sumac
1 tsp chili flakes
Put all the flour in a big bowl, make a pit in the middle, add the egg, salt, and warm water, and knead.
When you get a non-sticky but soft dough, cover it with a cloth and let it rest.
In a separate bowl, grate the onion and add the ground beef to it.
Add black pepper, salt, and chili flakes and knead.
Take a small handful of pieces from your dough and flatten the dough balls with a rolling pin. To prevent the dough from sticking, you may sprinkle a bit of flour on or under it.
Cut the flattened dough into little squares. (Pretty much the size of big sugar cubes.)
Place a tiny piece of the ground beef you prepared in the middle of each square.
Wrap them up in little bundles by closing the ends of the squares. Pinch to seal.
Fill a deep pot with water and boil the mantis for about 20 minutes.
For its sauce, melt butter in a small pan.
Add 2 tbsp of tomato paste to the melted butter and stir.
Take a couple of spoons of boiling water and add it to the tomato paste to make it a smooth sauce.
Whisk the yogurt, add crushed garlic and salt, and mix them in a separate bowl.
After draining the manti, place it on a plate and add the yogurt all over it.
Drizzle the tomato sauce on top and garnish with dried peppermint, sumac, and chili flakes to your taste.
