Khychin's recipe with cheese

Caucasian buns - khychin with brynza and greensKhychin is a burrito with a filling of Karachai and Balkar cuisine. There are about 40 kinds of these cakes, but the main difference between Balkarian khichin and Karachai is that they have different thicknesses and are fried in different ways. The Balkar Khychins are thin and are cooked in a dry frying pan (and used to be cooked on charcoal), Karachai thick and fry in oil. The most common stuffing is meat, in previous times hutchins with different fillings played a certain ritual role. For example, a shekher was prepared with a filling of sour cream with sugar in honor of the first steps of the child, and the khichin was stuffed with curd with honey and butter, meeting the bride crossing the bridegroom's threshold. Now the ritual values ​​are almost forgotten, but the Khychin are one of the favorite dishes in the national cuisines of Karachais and Balkarians. I cooked hutchins according to the Balkar recipe, the cooking technology seemed very interesting to me. As a filling, she took cheese and greens. If desired, you can use any stuffing: from meat, potatoes and cheese, from any greens, including the leaves of beet, sorrel or nettle.
