This is a Jewish Sephardic dish which is quite similar to the Turkish "burak." Burekas can be prepared with various types of dough: strudel dough (thin leaves), rising dough or with types of prepared dough found in the market. This is a dish served on festive occasions, but also widely sold on Israeli street corners. To be tasty, it must be served hot and fresh.
- To make the dough, melt the margarine and mix with flour and salt. Add warm water until able to roll it out. Roll it, cut a leaf, and cut circles with a cup.
- Mix all the stuffing ingredients together.
- To shape the burekas, put one teaspoon of stuffing on each dough circle. Fold in half.
- On top, spread yolk and sprinkle sesame seeds. Place on a well-greased cookie tray and bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350° F until golden. Serve hot.
