To make a Lahmacun, you need to follow some steps and guidelines. The perfection of this dish will bring enchantment to the lives of many.
Ingredients of a Lahmacun
- Dough (dried yeast, flour, water, sugar, salt, olive oil)
Steps in Making the Lahmacun
- If you want to make your own dough then you should start by combining the dried yeast, flour, sugar, water, salt and a little bit of olive oil and mix them thoroughly. After feeling how dense it is, start kneading them forcefully so that you can attain perfectly soft dough.
- Set aside the dough and start working on the filling. Mix onion, tomato sauté and the butter. Do this for about 6 minutes.
- Add the remaining ingredients into the bowl. Never let the mixture be super dry. Always add a small amount of water for moistures.
- Get a hold of the dough that you have made again and start forming them into logs that you can cut into two or three pieces
- Put the pieces of the dough down and flatten them but not too flat because they need to be thick for the filling.
- Fill the dough with the prepared fillings.
- Set down a tray with aluminium foil brushed with olive oil so that you can bake the Lahmacuns immediately.
- Place the Lahmacuns in the tray and into the oven. Do not forget to brush each pieces with a little bit of olive oil. The baking time is 12 to 15 minutes. More than that and your Lahmacuns will be burnt.
- Take out the Lahmacun out of the oven and cut some lemons so that you can squeeze its juice to each of them. This is to add a little bit of acidity onto the Lahmacuns.
You can also make other kinds of fillings for your Lahmacuns. There are a lot of options that you can choose from. If you prefer to put cheese rather than tomato sauté then you can prepare a cheese filling. However, when you do this, always make sure that you know the other guidelines because other fillings can also mean other timeframe for baking.
