Mix risen yeast with all ingredients and kneed. Cover and let it rest one hour.


Keshik mixture

The Ketchup is merely to provide a reddish color. Depending on how much you want to make. Add olive oil to keshik until all covered and spreadable but not runny. Add sesame seeds to taste and a couple of Tablespoons of Ketchup.


Beef mixture

Shape into circles, spread the mixtures, bake at 400F until done and enjoy!
