Cooking Lamango:

Step 1: knead the dough.

We cultivate yeast in 1 cup (200 ml) warm water (or whey). We leave the dough in a warm place to approach. When the dough comes up, that is, its amount will increase in 1-2 times it can already be added to the kneading dough. Take in a large bowl and pour in a pound of sifted wheat flour there, break 1 chicken egg put salt to taste, pour in the dough and knead our dough. Then cover the kneaded dough in a bowl with cling film and let it rest in a warm place 30-40 minutes.

Step 2: make cakes.

When your dough is slightly suitable in a bowl, it should be divided into small (no bigger than a child’s fist) balls, which should be rolled into thin (as long as possible) flat cakes. , It will be very easy to roll the dough ball thinly, if you first put the dough ball straight into a small flour hill - then without any cracks and tears you can roll it directly to a transparent state, and all excess flour after that is easily brushed off.

Step 3: make the filling.

While our dough is suitable, we will prepare the filling. For lamanjo, as described in this recipe, you will need to take lamb stuffing. But lamb with us is either rarely available or it is very expensive. Therefore, I often use the usual ground beef for this - to the taste of a lanjo, this does not suffer from it at all. So, take a pound minced meat, add to it 1 large (or 2 medium) previously chopped onion and garlic in a meat grinder, greens finely chopped on a cutting board (parsley, cilantro, basil, you can take it all together, or you can remove what you don’t really like), add a little salt and pepper to taste . Sometimes, if desired, I add to the total mass of greens and finely chopped bitter pepper - but this is according to your personal desire and to your taste. Pour tomato puree into the minced meat. If you don’t have mashed potatoes, you can safely dilute the tomato paste with a small amount of water to the consistency of thick sour cream, and sometimes I twist fresh tomatoes in a meat grinder - they are also great for this. Mix everything thoroughly with a spoon. Stuffing in the end should turn out to be liquid, like a very thick sauce.

Step 4: spread the tortillas with minced meat.

So, the mince is ready, the dough is rolled into thin cakes ... And we heat an absolutely dry frying pan on the stove and gently dry each resulting cakes on it for 1 minutes now on the one hand, then on the other. Lightly grease a baking sheet with a culinary vegetable oil brush and spread our flat cakes on top with the fried side up on top. We spread on every flat cake 1-2 tablespoons forcemeat and spread it with a spoon over the entire surface of the tortillas.

Step 5: Bake the Lamanjo.

Preheat the oven to 200-250 degrees and put cakes on a baking sheet to bake there for 7-10 minutes. You will see - when the buttered mincemeat on the tortilla ceases to seem wet - then everything is ready and you can get the pan from the oven.

Step 6: serve the lamanjo.

We add the ready-made lamanjos directly from the baking sheet to the serving dish right in the pan - one on top of the other. And then with pleasure we eat - it will be convenient for anyone - it can be folded in the form of an envelope in two layers or four, you can also roll them into a tube, or you can eat with a knife and a fork (though I have never seen such a thing in my life). Lamanjo is perfect both in winter for a hot gull and for vodka in the summer heat. It can be eaten with cold kvask or cool tan. We, as usual, do not get to the table of a lanjo - children directly grab them from a hot baking sheet. These are such delicious cakes. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Most often, for a dish such as lamanjo, they mainly use yeast-free dough made on the basis of yogurt. But I strongly advise you to make your own version of this dish, which I like best both to my taste and ease of cooking.

- - I advise you to cook simultaneously on 3 baking sheets, as I do, that is, make such a conveyor. And then while some are baked in the oven, others become baked in their place, and so on.

- - Lamanjos are superbly heated in the microwave, if, for example, you have prepared them for the future right at the arrival of the guests. In general - how do you like to do it, because the lamanjo is very picky in this regard.
