Chebureks are known to be a traditional dish in many national cuisines. Cheburek is a baked product made from unleavened dough and various fillings, mostly meat. The minced meat is complemented with plenty of onions and spices. But there are, of course, other fillings: cheese, vegetable and mushroom, it all depends on the culinary imagination.
To bake really appetizing tasty and beautiful-looking chebureks, which would have a thin bubbly and crispy dough, you need to know a lot of gastronomic secrets related to the preparation of the dough. But we decided not to burden you with kneading cheburek dough, but to offer you to make incredibly delicious pasties from pita bread in a pan, which can also be called lazy or lazy (of course, loving). Such pasties from pita bread are not as oily as regular regular pasties, which, when frying, absorb a large amount of oil.
According to the recipe, our pasties from pita bread are in no way inferior to the usual ones, they are just as juicy inside and have an attractive crispy edge. For the recipe, use thin pita bread, which you can buy at any store. It is desirable that it be square or rectangular in shape. As for the meat filling, we took mixed minced meat. The rest of the details are in our step-by-step recipe.
Chebureks, first of all, we associate with Central Asian or Caucasian food. There is a version that in Russia they began to cook pasties after the Russian-Turkish wars. The recipe for their preparation was borrowed from the Crimean Tatars. It is believed that the recipe for making dough for pasties with vodka was invented in Rus'.
Cooking pasties at home is not difficult at all. Our lavash chebureks with minced meat were most likely invented to save time. Indeed, the shell for pasties is already ready - this is a thin pita bread, we just have to quickly form blanks and fry them.

If we talk about the benefits of such a dish as pasties from the point of view of healthy and proper nutrition, then of course, this product can be called healthy food with a stretch. After all, pasties are fried in a large amount of oil, and, as you know, fried food releases an excess amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. But you can replace frying in a pan with cooking pasties in the oven. Our lazy lavash chebureks are cooked in a small amount of oil, and this, of course, is their big plus. Eat delicious pasties, but only in moderation.
So our lazy pasties are ready for a hearty snack using thin pita bread and meat filling. If you are confused by the square or rectangular shape of pasties, then you can make the blanks round. You can make additions to the filling for chebureks, for example, replace minced meat with chopped mushrooms.
