City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Tasty ćevapi

I invite you for a Sunday dinner today for a portion of ćevapi – ćevapčići, pronounced chevapi and chevapchichi as in cherry. Ćevapi is a national dish of B&H and from city to city recipe slightly deviates. If you can’t come over, here is the recipe should you wish to make it yourself.

Ćevapčići or ćevapi:
1 lb/500g lean ground beef
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 red onion
Mix all the ingredients together. Shape in thumb-sized or croquette size shapes. Grill on open grill until done (can be fried in a frying pan also). Serve with pita bread or bread rolls, and freshly sliced onion rings, that’s an optional extra. I like to put pepper on top just before eating.

Bon Appetite

What’s your favourite dish?

thanks all for stopping by.

tut-tut this is what i found on internet, bare in mind that i never made them myself.
Lepine(pita bread):
1lb or ½kg of flower
little bit of milk
tsp of yeast
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
Mix everything together and it has to have soft consistency, when dough has risen cut it in small peaces of dough than roll them in flower, to be thin, not too thin.
Put the baking paper on the baking tray and oil it a bit and than put ‘lepine’ – pita bread(s) on the baking tray and leave them once more for 15 min to rise once more. Preheat the oven, medium heat, (apparently they’ll turn hard otherwise) make impressions with a blunt knife on top of each one and bake them for 15-20 min or ‘till they’re baked. When taken out from the oven leave them for a while till they’re set.
