Malaysian Murtabak


I'm back...
My family and me have been 'locked' in our home quarantine for almost whole week. It all started with my hubby - he returned from work with fever, dry cough, muscle aches... It spread to all 4 of us in next few days...
We're fine now,... just keep coughing a lot!

Recipe comes from Malaysia (India has similar dish), where this kind of food is sold as 'street food'. The dough remind me  of Bosnian 'Burek' and /or Turkish 'Gozleme'.  I LOVE the taste of added aromatics

Ingredients:
Dough-
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
100 ml (+) water
1/2 cup oil (for greasing)
Filling-
1 tbs oil
250 g mince (chicken or veal, preferable)
1/2 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2-1  tsp Garam Masala
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup peas (optional)
1-2 tbs coriander leaves, chopped
Extra-
2 eggs, beaten and seasoned
1/2 onion, sliced
Method:
Make a soft dough from salt, flour and water. Divide in 4, cover with oil (turn to coat all over) and leave aside for 30 min.
Heat  oil, saute onion, mince and the rest of ingredients. Cook until meat cooked; check seasoning. Cool slightly.
Beat eggs in a separate bowl; slice onion.
Place non-stick pan on heat.
With palm of your clean hand spread 1 tbs oil (from bowl with dough) on a smooth clean surface. Place 1 part of dough on it and roll out the dough as thin as possible ( I do this with my oiled palms - find it easier)
Place 2 tbs of beaten egg in the middle, then 2-3 tbs of filling and sprinkle some onion on top. Lift sides of the dough  (opposite ones first) cover the filling. Carefully lift murtabak and place on hot pan  (with covered side up). Press slightly with spatula. When slightly browned , turn the dough and do the same with other side.
Repeat with other 3. Serve warm!


Murtabak - Malezijski Burek

Evo mene...
Skoro sijelu sedmicu dana sam zajedno sa mojom porodicom bila u 'kucnom pritvoru'... Sve je otpocelo sa mojim dragim, koji je dosao sa posla tresuci se od hladnoce, sa suhim kasljem i bolovima u misicima. Prosirilo se na sve 4 nas ...Sad smo u redu, iskljucujuci kasalj, koji nas jos uvijek prati.

Recept je Malezijski (mada i u Indiji slicno prave) i podsjeca malo na nas burek i Tursku gozlemu. Volim dodatak aromaticnih sastojaka, koji doprinose ukusu.

Potrebno:
Tijesto-
1 solja brasna
malo soli
100 ml (+) vode
1/2 solje ulja  (za 'namastiti')
Fil-
1 K ulja
250 gr mljevenog mesa (piletina ili teletina najradije)
1/2 crvenog luka, isjeckanog
1 ceno bijelog luka, protisnutog
1 k rendanog djumbira
1/4 k turmerika
1/2 -1 k Garam Masale
so i biber prema ukusu
1/3 solje graska (po zelji)
1-2 K lisca korijandera, sjeckanog
Jos-
2 jaja, umucena sa malo soli i bibera
1/2 crvenog luka, sjecenog na rebarca
Nacin:
Umijesiti  mekano tijesto od vode, brasna i soli (kao za pitu); podijeliti na 4. Postaviti u posudu sa uljem (malo uvaljati svako tijesto) Ostaviti po strani oko 30 minuta.
Zargijati ulje, proprziti luk, pa dodati i ostale sastojke. Prziti i  mijesati  dok meso ne promijeni boju. Provjerite ukus. Ostavite prohladiti.
Umutite jaja, isjecite luk.
Stavite tavu sa ne prijanjajucim dnom na vatru. 
Uzmite 1 K ulja iz posude sa tijestom, i sa cistim rukama namazite povrsinu na kojoj cete raditi. Stavite 1 kuglu tijesta, razvaljajte sto je moguce tanje (ja ovo radim nauljenim rukama). 
Na razvuceno tijesto stavite 2 K jaja, zatim 2-3 K mjesavine i malo crvenog luka po povrsini. Preklopite tijesto preko punjenja (suprotne stranice najprije). Pazljivo dignite i premijesitie na tavu (preklopljena stana gore). Dok se pece lagano stisnite sa spatulom po povrsini. Okrenite i ispecite i drugu stranu. Ponovite isto sa preostale 3 loptice tijesta. Servirajte toplo!

  2. Po nazivu posta uopće nisam mogla pretpostaviti što je to zapravo, ali mi se sviđa, posebno kad sam vidjela napomenu da podsjeća na burek.
    Drago mi je da ne tjedan bolesti iza vas i želim vam što brže potpuno ozdravljenje, jer znam kako je suh kašalj naporan i iscrpljujući.

  6. hi jasna, glad you got back your health.. reading your murtabak recipe makes me smile broadly.. i am a malaysian and a foodie blogger, yet i have never tried making murtabak. ha ha, i find the spreading and stretching and thinning of the dough a tedious thingy to do. so i just buy ready from the restaurant. Yours look delicious too. i marvel at you, making this. i also like minced beef filling. have a great weekend

    1. Hi,

      This is really a tasty dish which can be prepared with some simple ingredients. It is simply upgraded from the plain paratha by filling it with spiced minced meats and fold the sides into an envelope. Thanks a lot.
