Gubadia – Губадия – By Giuzel Gaffanova

As part of our SurvivalBG's Recipe contest we introduce Giuzel's Gubadia (Губадия).

Gubadia is a traditional pie in the Tatar and Bashkir national cuisine. Its peculiarity is that it is unopened, round and multi-layered. The pie is mostly made sweet and served for tea. However, gubadia can also be with meat filling and served as a second course. Gubadia is prepared on holidays, for weddings, when celebrating naming and meeting welcome guests. According to the ritual meaning, such a pie is close to Russian karavai.
