MUCVER

1000 gr. zucchini
1 bunch green onion
100 gr. white cheese
4 eggs
1 glass flour
black pepper
salt

oil to fry

grate zucchinis and chop green onions and then add grated white cheese, eggs, flour, black pepper and salt. at this point you should have a slightly watery dough, it shouldn't be hard and too watery.. then after you mix the dough very well, heat the oil in the pan and take one spoon ful of dough and put it into pan and fry both sides.. drain excess oil and put them into a serving plate..

Thank you for the recipes-I will make the soup for my friends on Thursday.  I'm not Turkish but I have lived there, Ankara (many many years ago) and have been back for one visit to show my daughter.

maybe a chemist could make the glass etch lotion if you had the ingredients?

Hi,

Just found this board while responding to a thread in a search results list.

I'll add this recipe because it was taught to me by a Turkish guy long ago (we cooked it on the beach, not far from Adana).
If it's not Turkish, at least it's good for a cheap, nutritious, one-pot meal.

Ali's Egg Stew
margarine and/or oil
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 yellow summer squash, chopped
2 med-lg. tomatoes, well chopped
basil, thyme, marjoram (med. pinch each)
salt and pepper (to taste)
3-4 eggs
(op. hot, crusty bread)

Beginning with onion, saute all veggies till translucent.
Add tomatoes & spices... simmer at least 5 min.

There are two options from here for the eggs... one looks better, one tastes better IMO:
1. Add beaten eggs to the stew.... simmer a few minutes, while stirring
2. Add whole eggs to top of strew...cover and allow to poach (this is the one that looks impressive)

Is this actually a Turkish dish??

One thing that everyone loves is Sigara Boregi, or Deep Fried Feta Cheese Rolls.  In Turkey I use Yufka, but in America I use won ton wrappers.  Make a filling of crumbled Feta cheese and chopped flat leaf Italian parsley.  Put about a teaspoon of filling into a wrapper, roll up like an egg roll, sealing with water or egg wash, and deep fry in oil.  Yummy!

Another easy thing is Pogaca, or feta cheese stuffed biscuits.  In America I use Pilsbury buttermilk biscuits or cresent rolls and the same feta cheese mixture as above.  I take one biscuit, flatten it out, put a spoonful of filling in, and fold them over into half moon shapes and seal well.  Brush the top with an egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and bake as directed on the biscuit can.  Great appetizer.

When I lived in Germany, we ate dner and lamacun all the time. It was the best fast food around. Anyone have recipes for those? I imagine the meat isn't something easy to prepare at home - ist there an approximation?

I have an Americanized version of borek that I make regularly.  It uses tortillas instead of yufka.
1 pkg. large flour tortillas
1 pkg. frozen spinach
1 onion, diced
1 pkg. mushrooms
1 pkg. feta, crumbled
1 c. yogurt
1 tbs. olive oil
1 egg

Heat oven to 375
Sautee the onion in some olive oil.  Add the mushrooms and cook together a bit before adding the spinach.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, oil, and egg.
Lay out a tortilla, put a spoonful of the yogurt mixture on it and spread it around.  Then, about 1/3 of the way from an edge, lay out a line of the spinach filling.  Crumble some feta on top.  Roll up the tortilla, tucking an end around the filling and continuing from there.  Place in a shallow baking pan.  Do this for the rest of the tortillas.  Once they are all lined up in the pan, spoon some yogurt mixture on top of each one and spread it on top.  This will maker a golden crust.  Bake for about 30 minutes.  Enjoy hot or cold!  Cheesy

I'd love a traditional recipe of tabouli.
I have a couple of recipes allready but they're not quite the same as ones I have tasted.
There seems to be something missing in the way of herbs or spices.

I lived in Turkey, Incirlik to be specific, traveled a lot while there.  Turkey is a beautiful country with lovely people.  The food is beyond words it is so delicious.  I loved the borak, yufta, yoghurt, the vegetables are huge and so much tastier than in the USA, and everything is affordable.  I have made borak with tortillas and with egg roll dough but nothing matches making it with yufta.  I really liked an Adana Kebob.  If you have a recipe for this I would be so happy.  I know you use lamb, cumin, etc, not sure what to use instead of the bread that wrapped the kebob. I love that recipe site you gave too.

I've made borek with phyllo pastry that turned out quite well!

I'd like a personal Turkish chef, also one that can make me gozleme on a daily basis.
YUM!

I am going to try that phyllo dough for borek I think my grandsons will love that.  They love finger foods and that is so addictive.  I cant wait to try it.  Ill let you all know how it turns out.

Portakal agaci is run by my neighbor's friend! I live in an apartment building filled with 20 something Turkish families (including my own) and I jumped to see there was a Turkish child board!

Hello all!
I have been looking around on this site for awhile.. my daughter turned me on to it and now I cant stop. She makes purses and bags.. anyway I saw the site about Turkey and had to join. My fater was in the Air Force and we lived there for a few years.. when I was in the 6th- 9th grade. I loved it there.. We lived in Adana and then on the air base there.. Incirlik.. I often wonder what it is like there now. I would love to go back and see, but that is just not possible for me.. well not now. I used to have this puzzle ring that I got a shop across the street from our apartment and cant find them anywhere.. does anyone know where I could find one?
Anyway nice talk with you.. Tracy

If you google "puzzle ring" you can find tons of them, but most of them are $300 gold and platinum rings!  I'm sure you can find one on ebay...

I lived in Istanbul for 7 years when I was younger, and I absolutely LOVED it!!  I went to IICS when it was still at the Rumeli Hisar campus.  I'm actually going back in February to visit my best friend and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!  And it's almost time for my 10 year high school reunion, too...I wonder if anyone will organise anything...

And I found a fantastic website FULL of turkish recipes!

http://www.geocities.com/ftcookery/recipe_index.htm

There is a great Turkish restaurant here in Columbus, Ohio called Cafe Istanbul (it's at Easton), and it's really the best Turkish food outisde of Turkey that I've ever had.

Oh, by the way, are there any IICSers here on craftster?  I'll be coming to visit the new campus in February...ooooh yea!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection
