Chicken Beyti

(Tavuk Beyti)

Chicken Beyti
Kofte Ingredients:
500 g extra lean ground chicken
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp red pepper paste, sweet
1 tsp red pepper paste, hot

For Roll (sarma):
1 packet Original Tortillas (keep them warm)

1 tsp butter, melted
Parsley, finely chopped

Yogurt Sauce & Tomato Sauce:
Yogurt, at room temperature
1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes, heated up with a few tablespoons of water

Knead all the kofte ingredients for 3-4 minutes. If you can, use the flat metal skewers for this kebab. Take a fist-sized ball and place it on the skewer starting from the tip of the skewer. Squeeze and flatten it on the skewer going back slowly, so that it is thin and flat.

Preheat the barbecue or oven (grill). Place the skewers on the rack. Make sure to turn the skewers so that all sides of the meat cook equally. Afterwards, roll the Kebab pieces with a Tortilla, but only one layer, it shouldn't be thick. Brush the surface of the Tortilla with the melted butter. Sprinkle some chopped parsley all over and cut in 2-inch wide pieces. Arrange them on a serving dish along with yogurt and tomato sauce, and serve while they are still hot.

Makes 4 servings.

What kind of bread is used to make this sarma in an original recipe? Is it lavash or maybe yufka ? I haven had it before. I want to try it. Greetings
