A broad variety of filled pastas are made in Anatolia, there are different stuffed pasta known by the same name in this lokal region, Sivas Manti shape is triangular and this triangular Manti shape is particular to the region of Sivas city. There are many different pasta stuffed with different vegetables, cheese or grounded meat, each has own particular flavour. The manti with potato is like a ravioli and it is filled with boiled potato.

This traditional potato manti dish commonly makes at Sivas city of Turkey and the city has a special place within Turkish cuisine because the city districts and its villages has different traditional foods and custom.


For Dough Ingredients:

2 cup plain flour and one cup extra flour

an egg

2-3 tablespoon Water

1/4 teaspoon salt to taste

For making filling:

3 medium size potato

1 small onion, finely diced

1 tablespoon Parsley and mint, finely chopped

Grounded black pepper, chilly pepper and sea salt to taste.

Boil the potato until a fork can easily pierce them. Drain the potatoes and mesh them with your fork or a potato masher and let it cool. Add the chopped onion and salt over the cooled potato. Sprinkle grounded black pepper, chilly pepper to taste. Add the parsley and mint, mix well by a fork and set aside.

For Making Yogurt Sauce:

1 Cup Turkish yogurt or Greek yogurt, sprinkle a pinch of salt over the yogurt, add a clove mashed garlic and mix them and set aside.

For making Tomato Sauce:

1 tablespoon finely diced onion

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoon butter

1/2 teaspoon tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon pepper paste

Put the olive oil in a small saucepan and add the chopped onion, cook it over the medium heat. Fry the onion until it gets golden brown and add the butter, the tomato paste, pepper paste. Stir them with a spoon and remove the saucepan from the heat, keep warm the sauce and set aside.


1- Place the plain flour in a large bowl and break the egg in the middle of the flour, add 2 tablespoon water and pinch of salt. Mix them with a fork or use your fingers.

2-Mix well with your hands until it becomes a uniform dough, add some more flour if necessary and knead about 10 minutes until the dough becomes Smoot and elastic.

3- Cover the dough by a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, set aside to a rest about 20 minutes.

4- Divide the dough into two pieces and roll out the first dough with a rolling pin or pasta machine. I used my rolling pin to make pasta sheet.Roll the dough until it gets really thin or about 1 mm. Sprinkle flour under your dough sheet and lay the dough sheet, cut it 5 cm (2in) squares with a knife or pastry wheel.

5-Place the potato filling in the centre of the square, Fold it like a triangle and pinch it, seal the filled pastry. Transfer the shaped manti to a floured plate or floured surface, sprinkle more flour over the manti to prevent sticking.

6- Bring to boil a large pot of salted water. Toss the manti (manti filled with potato) slowly into the boiled water. Let them cook about 2-3 minutes, taste one to make sure is tender. Drain well, place it a serve plate and spoon the yogurt, drizzle tomato sauce over it, serve warm. Or serve the manti ( pastry filled with potato and cooked) with simple melted butter. Enjoy it!
