Handmade Bourekas

From the Natural and Kosher Kitchen, Miri Oren brings you her family’s boreka recipe.


Dough Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups of flour
7 oz of butter
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons oil
¾ cup of sour cream
Pinch of salt



Filling Ingredients:
1 potato, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup Natural & Kosher shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Natural & Kosher crumbled feta cheese
1-2 eggs
pinch of salt and paper



Mix and put all the ingredients for the dough in a food processor or in a bowl.
Roll out the dough to 3-4mm thick and cut out circles with a cutter or a glass.
Place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center, fold and pinch around to seal the filling inside
Place the borekas on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Prick them with a fork to allow steam to escape.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk with 1 tsp of cool water. Use a pastry brush to brush a light layer of egg wash onto each borakitas and sprinkle with seasame seeds on top of each one.
Bake in preheated oven on medium heat until they are golden brown. Best eaten right out of the oven!
