Fried Rolls with Mixed Stuffing (Dürüşde Gutap)
Makes 20 rolls
For the dough
- 500 g flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon instant yeast
- 300 ml lukewarm water
For the filling
- 3 large (800 g) potatoes
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 5-6 (200 g) cabbage leaves, finely chopped
- 150 g minced beef
- 4 tablespoons parboiled rice
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch ground black and red pepper
- vegetable oil for deep frying
To make the dough, combine the water, salt, yeast and flour in a mixing bowl. Knead until you have a soft, elastic dough. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave the dough to rise.
In the meantime, boil the potatoes until tender, peel them, and mash them with a potato masher. Heat the oil in a pan, add the finely chopped onion and cabbage leaves, and saute over medium heat until soft. Add the minced beef and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Place the rice in a saucepan and add about 500 ml (2 cups) of water. Cook the rice over medium heat until tender, then drain. Transfer the meat mixture to a bowl and add the mashed potatoes, rice, salt, and ground black and red pepper. Mix well.
Divide the dough into two balls. Roll out each ball to a thickness of 3 mm (1/8 inch) and cut out rounds 12 cm (5 inches) in diameter. Pat any leftover dough together and repeat the process. Place a tablespoon of the filling in each round. Bring the edges up to the center, pinch to seal, and gently pat to flatten.
Heat the oil in a large pot and drop in the rolls. Fry the rolls until golden brown and crispy.

What a great idea. Instead of plain rolls, adding stuffing with that extra delighful flavor. Thanks for the inspiration.
I’m so happy to find a Blog about Turkmen food, thank you!
But I have one question: my turkmen friend says that there they don’t use instant instant yeast but women make and replicate it themselves. I’m so much interested in that! If you know how to do that, could you share a recipe for that and how to prepare the rolls with that? I would really appreciate!
Greetings from Germany 🙂
Thank you! We don’t have a recipe for that yet but we’ll be on the lookout 🙂
