We love food and we love to try out new flavours. We got to know the Turkish cuisine pretty good with the time. It was not easy to decide, but these are our five favorite Deliciuos  Turkish Dishes

1.) Annika’s Number one: Çiğ Köfte (and also the vegetarian version: Kısır)

The main ingredients are onions, beef and bulgur.

Çiğ Köfte to go with lettuce leaves, lime, parsley and pomgranate sauce. They can be eaten in lettuce or thin bread.

Çiğ Köfte Dürüm: wrapped in thin bread

Kisir is similar to Çiğ Köfte but without meat and with a lot more vegetables. It is eaten without thin bread. In the southeast of the country Kısır and Çiğ Köfte can be very spicy.

2) Roberto’s Number one: Yoghurt soup

A hot soup based on yoghurt and herbs. We could not take it a picture yet, but found a recipe online.

3) Our homemade favorite: Mantı. Mantı are similar to Ravioli and eaten with yoghurt and a bit of spicy tomatoe sauce on top. Our very favorite is Irem’s mother’s “Orospu Mantısı”. Officially they are called “Gül Mantısı” Deliciuos Turkey!

5.) Everybody’s favorite: Pide. Pide is similar to Pizza, but it is longer and in the Black Sea region around Samsun the dough is closed. There are Pides with meat, with cheese and with both.

Roberto and Bayram enjoy Pide with Ayran, a yoghurt drink.

I found a couple of recepies online but though I have never tried them our myself (just helped cooking) I cannot tell what is good and what not. Just try it out and let us know how you liked it.

Afiet olsun! (Enjoy your meal)
