Can you describe this particular dish that you're looking for? The more detailed the better. Also, any unique procedures and/or ingredients would help as well.

that is all i know. :(

any help would be appreciated very much!

I don't know the particular bread you've described, but I will tell you that when trying to find Bosninan - or any other specific ethnic - recipes, I've found it helps to keep your eye out for relatives. Chances are good that Serbians, Croatians, even Turks and Armenians have something very similar, even identical, but call it something different. Good luck!

yes, i've thought of that, thanks. i actually saw a recipie for a serbian dish that said 'serve with hot somun' and of course, they didn't give the recipie for that. i went crazy!

there is a member on here that i saw, he said he was serbian, so i pm'd him, requesting his help. hehe. i hope i didn't bother him too much!!

This is a typical Bosnian dish!

Bosnian Pot

Preparation 3/4 hour
Baking 3 hours
Total time 3-3/4hours

3 lbs. lamb or beef, cut into cubes
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbsp. finely chopped garlic
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped celery leaves
1 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
3 bay leaves
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup chopped kohlrabi
1/2 cup chopped parsley root
1/2 cup chopped celery root
1 cup green beans, cut into 1" pieces
2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into squares
2 cups tomatoes, peeled, seeded and quartered
3 cups potatoes, cut into cubes
2 leeks, cleaned and cut into 1/2" slices
1 cup coarsely chopped cabbage
1/2 tsp. hot paprika or cayenne, or to taste
6 cups water
1/4 cup vinegar


Preheat the oven to 350F.

Rinse the meat and put in a sieve to drain. Combine the onion, garlic, parsley, celery leaves, salt, pepper, and bay leaves. Melt the butter in a large, oven-proof stew pot, then put alternate layers of vegetables and meat, sprinkling some of the onion/garlic/parsley combination on top of each layer. Combine the water and vinegar, and pour it into the pot. Cover the pot with a lid or aluminum foil, and bake until everything is tender, about 3 hours.

P.S. Somun recepie's coming soon!

Although I couldn't come up with a recipe, I did come across some potential sources for one.

If someone in this forum can't produce a recipe, you might want to contact one of the people at these links:

http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0128/sietsema.php
http://www.togm.org.yu/eng/rudnike/neda.htm
http://www.bhuca.org/pressrelease.html
http://www.cankan.com/gturkishcuisine/41tc-grains.htm
http://www.atamanhotel.com/bread.html

These links, although not in English, mention somun and appear to be part of a collection of recipes:
