Then put the pre-prepared filling on the half of each hot flatbread in an even layer, fold the flatbread in half, covering with the second half.
Grease with melted butter on both sides.

(Kiginsky district of the Republic
– In our district kystybyi is cooked using kefir. In this way it gets a slight sourness, which harmonizes well with sweet potatoes in the filling. Properly selected spices also play an important role.
By the way, you can experiment with the filling, add your favorite vegetables, mushrooms and even meat along with potatoes.
But today I made kystybyi with millet porridge, as my family loves. To do this take 1 cup of kefir, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1⁄2 teaspoon of baking soda and flour. Mix all this well, knead until the dough stops sticking to hands.
Then roll out the dough into thin flatbreads, bake in a hot dry frying pan on both sides until golden brown.
Put the filling on the half of each flatbread in an even layer, fold the flatbread in half, covering the filling with the second half.
The flatbreads are greased with melted butter and served hot to the table.
Enjoy your meal!

(city of Murmansk):
– My mother taught us how to cook kystybyi in early childhood. I'm still bake it. Having moved to Severomorsk to my daughter, I really miss my native Bashkortostan. Therefore I constantly cook our Bashkir dish. Let my grandson and granddaughter not forget their origin.
And today I taught my sister's daughter Liliya Ul'yabayeva, who lives in Murmansk, how to cook kystybyi. In this way we prepared to meet our son-in-law, who serves in the Navy.
For the dough take melted butter, a little warm water, salt to taste and baking soda. The rolled flatbreads are baked in a dry frying pan until golden brown. Put mashed potatoes on one half of the flatbread and grease it with butter on both sides.
By the way, I also cook kystybyi from pancakes. For the filling I usually use mashed potatoes, it turns out delicious too.
Enjoy your meal!
