This dish was made for me by a Bosnian friend of a friend :). I adored the taste and simplicity of the dish. True and honest comfort food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a non stick pan and add small potatoe cubes. Let fry until they are crispy and brown.
  2. After a couple of minutes (before potatoe cubes go brown) add onion and garlic. Don't let them burn.(you can add a bit of water to prevent that from happening).
  3. Add allspice, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Butter a dish/pyrex/ with one TB of meltet butter.
  5. Take one phyllo sheet, brush with meltet butter, and put another pastry sheet on top of it.
  6. Place potatoe filling on one end of the phyllo sheets.
  7. Roll up like a cigar and form a spiral.
  8. Do so with the rest of sheets and filling.
  9. Place burek spirals into form and brush with the rest of the melted butter.
  10. Let bake at 180°C until golden, crispy (about 15 to 20 minutes).
  11. Enjoy with salad and/or yoghurt sauce.
