we ll start with filling. Put all ingredients in a bowl, mix them evenly and set this mixture aside.
To make dough, sift the flour and salt together in a large bowl, add some water gradually because it should be really hard dough. After you finished making it, divide the dough into 2 pieces. Grab one of them and start to roll it. It should be really thin sheet of dough then cut it into really small squares and put 1/2 tsp ground beef mixture in each square. Stick the corners of square together like a bundle and do the same thing to all squares.
After finished them, cook them in the hot boiling water then drain and put them in a platter. As a finishing touch, Put some yogurt (with chopped one clove of garlic) on it.
If you want to prepare like soup as you see in the picture, you need to put 2 tbs olive oil in a big and deep pan, turn the heat on, add 1 tbs pepper paste, 1 tbs tomato paste and 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper and 2 tsp dried mint saute them for a while.
Put 5 cups water and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes. add 1 can garbanzo beans and put Turkish manti and 1 lemon juice in it and let them boil together for 20 minutes. you can add some hot water if you need to, because dough will absorbe the water. Serve hot.
