Make Turkish style meat wrap "Tantuni" with minced meat. It is popular street food in Istanbul and all of Turkey but the recipe known from Mersin City on the coast of the Mediterranean. I am also going to show you how to make Turkish flatbread lavash too.
Here is the written recipe on my website: http://www.turkishfoodtravel.com/2020...
Traditionally Tantuni is made from a steak or tender beef and doesn't have peppers. But in this home version, I used ground beef for making it easy and lox budget and some veggies to give extra juice and taste.
Ingredients For Tantuni, Turkish Meat wrap:
500gr. minced meat (preferable fatty or a mix of beef and lamb if you like)
4-5 tbsp olive oil
1 sweet red pepper
3 sweet or mild hot green peppers
1 big ripened tomato
If your meat doesn't have much fat, you can add 1-2 tbsp butter
salt, red pepper flakes, ground red pepper, cumin (about a tsp each or as desired)
about 4-6 tbsp water
For the Lavash Flatbread:
1 cup lukewarm water
3-4 tbsp milk
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp active dry yeast
about 3 cups or little more flour (don't add all at once)
1 tsp salt
a rolling pin
griddle or big nonstick wide pan to cook
more flour to dust
For Assembling The Wrap:
1 red onion
1/2 tsp salt and sumac (sumac optional)
preferably 1/4 crisp iceberg lettuce or regular lettuce, thinly sliced
thinly sliced tomato
thinly sliced pickles
"Story of the Word Tantuni"
According to the story, a Yoruk (A nomadic man) boils the meat to preserve it longer, sets up his counter, and puts a stove near a school. his purpose is to roast boiled meat in oil and sell it to students. He also adds Tomato, parsley, and onion to the wrap. Students ask the man who made this food, which has no name yet, "you hit the spoon every time and make a sound "tan tun" what are you selling?"
This reflection sound of the spoon, the sound of "tan tun", inspires the man and gives the answer AS "tantuni".
