  1. That is not phyllo dough, nor would you be able to do what she's doing with phyllo dough. The dough in the video can only be found in Turkey. A similar, packaged dough found in the US will also not work due to its dryness. The dough in the video will need to be made from scratch.

  2. tried making this today but with store bought filo in the USA. it was too thin and is quite wet. it's currently sitting in the fridge. Pretty sure it'll be a disaster but anyone know if it will be ok or how to fix it?

  3. Please don't call this Water Borek ( su boregi) since it is completely different than the authentic Su Boregi. What you are showing is very common way of making Borek in Turkey by using a ready made rolled out dough and it is quite delicious but far from Water Borek.

  4. This is my favorite Su boregi,my grandmother and my mother did a different way by boiling water and put the dough in that boiling water and then to the pan with layers of dough then the cheese mixture then add more of that boiling water dough then on the top brush with melted butter,in my case I will use your recipe easier for me.

  5. This is excellent. To make it even better, use half feta and half mozzarella, reduce the parsley by a few tablespoons and replace with 4tbsp chopped fresh mint. Outstanding!
