BM# 44: A-Z Cooking Series — Around the World in 30 days

Country: T for Turkey

Dishes: Bulgur Pilaf, Stuffed Grape Leaves, Zucchini Fritters & Knafeh

We are going to Turkey today. One of my girl friend is from Turkey and after tasting their food many times, I knew I have to try those recipes for the BM. I even bothered her on vacation and asked her to suggest some Turkish dishes that I could try. Sweet heart that she is, she sent me links to recipes that I could try. So thanks to my dear friend, I have a yummy and filling Turkish meal today.

The first time I ever had Turkish meal was at a Turkish restaurant where one of my ex-colleagues had her daughter’s first birthday party. I don’t really remember what we ate that day, but I clearly remember enjoying everything that was served to us.

Here’s a glimpse of Turkish brunch that we had at a Turkish restaurant for my birthday this year. We had Simit (famous Turkish bread) sandwich with French fries and in the second picture is the typical breakfast dishes like cheese, jelly, egg, olives etc that are eaten in Turkey.

After that I was lucky enough to enjoy home cooked dishes made by my lovely Turkish friend and her mom. Their dishes are simple but they are exotically flavored with rose water or orange blossom water like in this Baklava. Mint and parsley are used extensively making the dishes taste fresh and delicious.

For today’s Turkish meal, I made:

Kanafeh

This was a very very filling meal and I skipped dinner after having these for lunch. All the savory dishes are packed with veggies, so you feel less guilty eating the dessert 🙂

  1. Wow,lucky you, i have Moroccan friends like this, we often plan get together just to enjoy both Morocca and Indian dishes. Omg, ur vegetarian meal rocks Pavani,i always want to make stuffed grape leaves which is quite hard to find here.. Sarma, Knafeh and mucuver looks simply out of the world.

  2. That simit sandwich looks good and was trying to figure out what that was before reading the post. You have put together a nice meal and knafeh is a nice way to finish off the meal. I made knafeh for HBC back in June we loved.
