How to make delicious homemade belyashes?

Appetizing and fragrant belyashi like many. But if you care about your health, then do not buy them in the bistro and in the markets. It is better to prepare belyashi at home, because it is not as difficult as it seems.

What is belyashi?

Belyashi certainly known to all. This is a kind of fried patty pie, the role of which is traditionally played by minced meat. Belyashi are very popular in many countries (especially in the countries of the former Soviet Union), but this dish is considered Bashkir or Tatar. A distinctive feature of the whiteish is the hole in the upper part, through which you can see the filling.

A lot of stuffing

The name Belyash received its name from the word “belish”, which in the Bashkir and Tatar national cuisines called open large baked pie with various fillings. Initially, not only meat was used as a filling, but also potatoes and other vegetables, and even some cereals (rice or millet).


Each housewife has her own tricks and secret ingredients of the dishes, but the ingredients of the belyash can be divided into two large groups:

  • Dough. It, in fact, can be any: puff, yeast, yeast-free, bland or rich. But traditionally used fresh yeast dough, it has the necessary consistency and does not drown out the taste of the filling, as, for example, butter.
  • Filling. Usually used meat filling. It can be beef, lamb, pork or even chicken. Meat can be chopped or minced to the state of minced meat (the easiest way to use ready minced meat). But meat is not the only option. Belyashi is quite possible to cook with potatoes, cabbage or mushrooms.

Cooking features

Not a restaurant food, but tasty

Preparing Belyashi is actually not as difficult as it might seem at first glance. Even an inexperienced mistress will cope with such a dish. Main stages:

  1. First you need to knead the dough. For this it is necessary to mix all the ingredients (it is better to do this in a certain sequence indicated in the recipe, otherwise the dough may turn out too dense or contain lumps). Then you can start the batch. The real housewives know that kneading the dough is best with hands. So you will not only achieve the necessary consistency, but also put all your soul into the dish.After kneading the dough should be covered and left for a couple of hours. Yeast dough must be kneaded 1-2 times.
  2. Now you can start preparing the filling. Mix the minced meat with spices and other ingredients and leave for half an hour to an hour so that it is slightly marinated. Experienced housewives recommend diluting minced water with water so that it is more juicy and does not dry out during the cooking process.
  3. Then you can proceed to the formation of belaya. The dough should be divided into small pieces that need to be covered and left for 10-15 minutes for proofing. Roll out the dough is not necessary, and this is a feature of cooking. The dough pieces are simply stretched with the hands, after which the filling is laid out in the recess in the middle, and the edges of the flatbread are podchipyvayutsya to the center. Do not forget to leave a hole (although some do not leave it, fearing that all the stuffing will fall out and end up on the pan).
  4. Now you can proceed directly to cooking. These belyashi correctly fry in oil, and in large quantities of oil. But you can choose another way, namely baking.
