Turkish Coffee Cup Börek

(Fincan Böreği)

<br />
Turkish Coffee Cup Borek
4 sheets of Phyllo Pastry

~150 gr medium ground beef
1 small onion, sliced
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 large potatoes, cooked, mashed
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 tsp red pepper, powdered

1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp olive oil

Sesame seeds
Nigella seeds

To prepare the filling; cook the ground beef with sliced onion and tomato paste. Let it cool down a little bit. Add the mashed potatoes, cheese, red pepper, salt and pepper in it, combine.

Whisk the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

Cut the sheet of phyllo in half and fold each of them (picture). Take a folded phyllo pastry and place over a Turkish Coffee cup, leave the sheet hanging over the rim of the cup (picture). Place some filling in it. Then fold over the sides. While folding the sides brush some sauce to close it up (picture). 4 sheets Phyllo Pastry makes 8 Turkish Coffee Cup Borek.

Place the parchment paper on an oven tray. Gently turn the tea cup upside down on the paper and pull up. The Börek will be arrange with the folded side facing down. Brush all over the surface of each Böreks with sauce and sprinkle some Nigella seeds and sesame seeds over the tops.

Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Bake until golden colour, for approximately 25 minutes.
