Bourkekia me Kima and Manitaria

Bourekia new for book

Bourekia is a type of fried or baked pastry made with flaky homemade phyllo and filled with a variety of ingredients.  It can be either savory or sweet, so apart from the minced meat we usually make in Cyprus, they can be filled with cheese, like anari, halloumi or feta, halvas, spanakopita filling,  mushrooms, etc.

You kind find similar pastries all over the world such as borek, empanadas, calzone, samosa, turnovers, each country having its own filling.

The Cypriot recipes for bourekia are included in my cookbook Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste! as well as in Volume 2 of the e-cookbook.
