How to Make Lahmacun

  1. First, prepare the dough. Add sugar and yeast to the warm water, stir and leave for 10-15 minutes to activate the yeast.
  2. Pour the flour into a large bowl, add salt and vegetable oil. Then add the water with yeast and knead the dough. It should be soft and elastic. Leave the dough under a food film for 1-2 hours in a warm place to rise.
  3. While the dough is rising, prepare the topping. Finely chop the vegetables and herbs, add the minced meat, spices, and salt. Mix well.
  4. When the dough has risen, divide it into equal parts (about 10-12 pieces). Roll out each part into a very thin flatbread.
  5. Apply the topping to each flatbread, evenly distributing it over the surface, leaving small edges.
  6. Bake the lahmacun in an oven preheated to 200 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
