Turkish Ravioli Dough and Filling
Method of Preparation
In a bowl mix the egg, water and salt together. Pour the flour onto a level work surface. Mound it into a mountain shape, make a well in the center. Pour the egg mixture into the well mixing the ingredients in the center first and gradually working in all the flour. The dough will be very stiff. Knead the dough for 15 minutes. Place in a buttered bowl cover with seal wrap, let rest for 1 hour at room temperature. Mix filling ingredients and set aside. Cut the dough into 3 pieces, knead each piece into a ball, cover with a damp cloth and let rest 30 minutes at room temperature. Sprinkle the work surface with light dusting of flour. Using a long thin rolling pin, roll the dough as thin as possible, paper thing. Cut the dough into strips, stack the strips on top of one another and cut the strips into squares. You must work quickly because the dough will dry out. Place a small amount of filling in each piece of dough and press to seal into a triangle. Sprinkle flour over the manti and refrigerate of freeze for later use. If using wonton wrappers fill, brush the edges of the wrappers with the beaten egg and seal into triangle shapes. Refrigerate or freeze for later use. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the Manti in and cook until they come to the surface, 1 to 1 ½ minutes. They will take more time if they have been frozen. Reserve a small amount of the hot cooking liquid and add to the yogurt sauce.
