Paçanga Börek Recipe

Paçanga is one of the most delicious boreks of Turkish cuisine. It can be prepared for breakfast or as a starter for dinner. It’s really delicious but frying makes it a little bit unhealthy. So you can think to bake it instead of frying. But when you bake it the texture would be like this borek recipe. In similar cases I generally prefer to eat less but eat it as the way it should be.

In order to decrease the amount of oil you need for fried food you can use a sauce pan instead of a large pan. You can obtain the depth you need with less oil in a smaller pan.

About the ingredients… You can use bacon instead of pastırma. You can use provolone, cheddar or mozzarella cheese instead of kaşar.

Enjoy the recipe…
