Burekas (Jewish Sephardic)


Jewish Sephardic BUREKAS 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. It is widely sold on Israeli street corners and bakery shops. To be tasty, it must be served hot and fresh.






  1. Dough: Melt the margarine and mix with flour and salt.
  2. Add warm water until able to roll dough. Roll it, cut a leaf, and cut circles with a cup or cut into square and make triangles.
  3. Stuffing: Mix all the ingredients.
  4. Put one teaspoon of stuffing on each dough circle. Fold in half.
  5. On top, spread yolk and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  6. Place on a well-greased cookie tray and bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) until golden (approximately 15 to 20 minutes).
  7. Serve hot.
