WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE MONGOLIAN KHUUSHUUR
Gather these simple ingredients: ground meat (beef or lamb), onions, garlic, flour, water, vegetable oil for frying, and your favorite seasonings.
Start by preparing the filling. In a bowl, combine the ground meat, finely chopped onions, minced garlic, and your choice of seasonings. Mongolian Khuushuur traditionally uses a mix of salt and pepper, but feel free to add your personal touch.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour and water to create a smooth dough. Knead it until it’s elastic and not too sticky.
Roll the dough into small pieces, then press each ball into a thin round disc, like a small pancake.
Place a spoonful of the meat mixture onto each dough disc.
Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Pinch the edges to seal the Khuushuur.
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place the Khuushuur into the hot oil.
Fry the Khuushuur until they become golden brown and crispy, usually for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Remove the cooked Khuushuur and place them on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
Serve the Mongolian Khuushuur while they are hot and crispy. You can enjoy them with a dipping sauce or your favorite condiment.
