"Qovoq burma" is a little bit time taking meal, again you have to work with a dough:) The difficult part is rolling it out, as thinner is dough as better. When I first cooked this dish, I just loved it, it is so tasty (especially if you are pumpkin lover as I am:) It is crunchy while hot and soft after a while. Makes 4 "Qovoq burma" from this recipe.
150 ml of water
Half a tbsp of salt
300 gr grated pumpkin
3 onions, peeled and sliced (150 gr)
60 gr of butter
Sugar if your pumpkin is not sweet enough
Salt to taste
Vegetable oil for greasing and a little oil for frying
Make simple dough from water, salt and flour, cover the dough and let it stand for 15 min. While your dough is resting, make the filling. Melt the butter in a pan and fry onions until golden, add in salt and sugar, then mix well with grated pumpkin.
Roll out the dough in thin flat circle, then cut it in 4 equal pieces. Grease each piece with oil.
Now layer evenly the quarter of filling to one piece. And start rolling around itself.
After you formed a log, roll again into a snail.
Place it on it's flat side and slightly press with hands. Repeat with the rest of the dough and filling. Then heat up your pan and pour 25 ml of oil, put one "Qovoq burma" and reduce the heat to low, cover the lid, and fry until downside of "Qovoq burma" is golden, just check it up slightly pulling up with spatula. It will take around 7-8 min.
After, turn upside down and continue frying with the closed lid for another 7-8 min or until golden. Fry out the rest of your "Qovoq burma"s adding just a little bit oil each time. Totally I spent 30 ml of oil. Serve this meal topping with sour cream, Yum!
