You can use
any bread dough recipe, or even buy it prepared in the supermarket.
However, I simply mix a little salt, the flour with yeast and
warm water. Add enough lukewarm water (about 1.5 cups) to the
flour until you can work with it as a pliable dough. Allow it to
rest in a warm covered area for 30-60 minutes.
Sauté onions and garlic in a frying
pan on medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the
cooked garbanzo and spices and mash the ingredients unti you make
a paste. Remove from heat and mix in the chopped parsley and salt
Now, divide the risen dough
into about 15 balls. Flatten out each ball into a circle of about
3 inches in diameter. Place large spoonful of the garbanzo mixture
in the center of the dough and fold over the sides to form a
closed pocket. Fry your simbusak in a generous portion of oil,
flipping once to brown each side.
Serve as a side dish or main course.
It's sooo good!
Although chickpeas are the traditional simbusak filling, you can
make it tasy with ground meat, or even cheese.
Your favorite filling = sooo good!
