Chebureki is a traditional dish of the Crimean Tatar cuisine.
It is believed that its roots go back to the Mongol-Tatar nomadic tribes. That is why chebureki are eaten wherever nomads set foot in the ancient times. Even in the highlands of Tibet you can taste a similar dish! But the name itself is purely Crimean Tatar and means "meat pie". In Ukraine, chebureki are also common among the Greeks of Mariupol, but under a different name - "chir-chir".
