Yantyk “Crimean” is a dish that is a bit like pasties, even the principle of cooking with them is identical. The only difference is the filling, since not minced meat is used, as for pasties, but cottage cheese. Although, in the vastness of the Web, many people cook yantyk with meat too. Such a crispy and unique delicacy can be safely served as a quick snack with sour cream or some other sauce. It also pairs well with sweet drinks like tea or coffee.
When choosing cottage cheese, it is desirable to use cottage cheese with a high percentage of fat content, and even better, the dairy product should be homemade. Salt, ground black pepper and fresh herbs – this is what you need to add to the cottage cheese. From the greens, the one that you love the most is suitable.
