Tantuni is a legendary Turkish recipe, particularly from the city of Mersin. Tantuni is a specialty based on sautéed beef wrapped in a delicious wrap. However, there are Tantuni with all kinds of meat, such as chicken (Tavuk Tantuni), beef or veal.
To make a Tantuni according to your tastes, you can wether chose Lavash bread, Durum or regular wraps.
You’re in for a treat!
Preparing raw vegetables
In a bowl, combine the chopped parsley, chopped onion, sumac and sec, then set aside.
Preparing Tantuni meat
In a saucepan, sauté your beef strips in a little oil until brown. Add 2 teaspoons of sweet pepper (or paprika), salt, pepper and a little cumin, and mix well. Add the diced tomatoes and sauté for a further 5 minutes.
Preparing Tantuni (with wrap, durum or lavash)
Once your beef is cooked through, take a patty (either a wrap, durum or lavash bread) and place it on top of the meat so that the bread absorbs the Tantuni's juices. Your bread should then have a lovely reddish color thanks to the sauce. Do the same for all your breads. If your preparation doesn't provide enough sauce for the bread, you can add a little oil and water and mix well.
Filling your Tantuni
Take your breads, soaked in Tantuni's sauce, and add 2-3 tablespoons of meat to the center of the bread. Add a few diced tomatoes. Mix your chopped onions with sumac in a bowl, then add some to the Tantuni. Then add the finely chopped parsley.
Rolling your tantuni turc with beef
To make a pretty Tantuni, roll the bread up on itself, pressing the ends together tightly. Don't forget to close the bottom of the wrap so that all the ingredients don't fall out!
Your homemade Tantuni turc is ready!
And now you've made a delicious Turkish Tantuni at home. You can enjoy it for lunch, dinner or even as a snack. Bon appétit! :)
