Why chebureks burst during frying: revealing the secrets of cooking
Chebureks are a Crimean Tatar dish that became especially popular in Soviet times and hasn't lost its relevance since. They are based on thin dough, which becomes bubbly and golden when fried, and juicy meat filling.
It often happens that chebureks begin to burst during the frying process and the filling leaks out. This becomes a really unpleasant moment for housewives, but such consequences are very easy to avoid if you know some secrets.
