If you don't have enough time to prepare the dough, you can make chebureks from pita bread. But even if you don't have it at hand, there is also an alternative – classic thin pancakes. But an important point: to prevent the filling from falling out during frying, chebureks should be pre-breaded in flour and egg.

Food blogger Olga Golovina, who goes by olha.holovina, shared a recipe for pancake-based chebureks on her Instagram page.
