  • Flour – 4 cups
  • Water – 1 glass
  • Salt – 1 teaspoon
  • For filling:
  • Lamb or beef – 450 g
  • White onions – 2 pcs.
  • Fat tail fat – 100 g
  • (or 2 tablespoons ghee)
  • Seasoning for samsa – zira
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

  4. Cut the meat into cubes.
  5. We mix meat and onions.
  6. Add ZIRA, black pepper, and salt.

  14. We also roll out the next piece and grease it, and put the previous roll in it.
  15. And so with each subsequent one. This will make the dough flaky and juicy.
  16. Here you get such a thick roll.
  17. We put it in a bag – and in the refrigerator for 1.5 hours.
  18. After a while, we take out the dough, cut it into 12-16 pieces.
  19. Roll each piece around the edges so that the middle is tight.
  20. And so all 16 pieces.
  21. We layout the meat.
  22. We make triangles, squeeze well.
  23. Put a sheet of parchment on a baking sheet, grease with oil.
  24. On a baking sheet with parchment, layout our samsa with the seams down.
  25. Lubricate with a beaten egg, you can just yolk.
  26. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, put Uzbek-style samsa in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
