(nearly 4-6 inches) long flat and thick meatballs (kebabs) by your hands from the meat mixture (bye the way, put water in a small bowl and keep it next to you. And dip your hands in this water frequently while shaping the meat. The water will help keep the mixture from breaking).
    • 3- Then, put a wax paper on your baking tray, align your kebabs in your tray and cook them in your oven for about 10-12 minutes. While waiting for the kebabs, prepare your Caramelized Tomato Sauce.
    • 4- For tomato sauce; put your butter in a saucepan and melt it. Then add blended tomatoes and garlic into melted butter and sauté for about 3-4 minutes as stirring constantly. Then add tomato paste into mixture sauté for about 1-2 more minutes and stir constantly. Lastly add your 2 cups hot water and stir your sauce until your sauce get a liquid consistency.
    • 5- Then take your store bought lavash (tortilla) leaves or if you want, you can prepare your own lavash in your kitchen. For Homemade Lavash (tortilla); First of all, in a medium bowl, combine your all purpose flour, water, yogurt and salt. With a spatula or wood spoon, mix ingredients and stir until a dough forms (or Use your hands to gently form a dough, which is sticky at this point) then cover the dough with a towel (or foil), and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 or 3 balls and dust each ball generously with flour. Then, use a rolling pin to flatten each ball up. Roll them out into a thin disc. Then, heat up a skillet to medium-high heat and place the rolled out your dough onto the dry pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until brown spots form, flip, and heat for another 3-4 minutes until brown spots form. That's it. Our homemade lavashs (tortilla) are ready.
    • 6- Then lay your lavash (or tortilla) leaves on your counter, cut into two pieces from the middle and spread melted butter on them with a brush. Align your kebabs through the wide side of the lavash leave and roll the lavash leave firmly. Cut your beyti kebab as three finger thicknes slantwise. Align your kebabs in your tray again and cook until the top fries. Take your beyti kebab in your serving plate and pour your tomato sauce through.
    • 7- Serve Beyti Kebab with yogurt and sprinkle the choped parsley on tops.
