Probajte samo u slučaju da imate dovoljno velik kuhinjski prostor ili sto! Prosto neverovatno za gledati!
A similar kind of method is also used to make Burek. I noticed that the bureks in Montenegro are different to the Serbian ones.
Sličan metod se takođe koristi za pravljenje bureka. Primetila sam da se burek u Crnoj Gori razlikuje od srpskog.
And then there is : Priganice (a kind of doughnut) that is eaten with the local cheese, honey and walnuts.
