Do you have a recipe for the sauce in which to marinate kebab meat in before roasting on a spit? Also the awesome yogurt/garlic sauce that is served on doner kebabs? Thanks, Justin

At 10:32 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Justin,
I am going to post more kebab recipes during the summer. There will be
sauced ones too:) I will also post the sauce used for Chicken Doner
kebab in 2 weeks...

Hi could you give me your Yogurt and Garlic Sauce recipe also.

Regards From Julie

At 11:15 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Julie,
Mash garlic with salt and mix with yogurt. We use yogurt and garlic in
so many ways, I don't understand exactly what you meant...what is it, Haydari? if it is I already posted it. On the site, below the google ads on the right, there's a search box.
so you can search just my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to find any recipe that I posted:)

Hi! I recently ate a fabulous salad/side dish at two different turkish restaurants and both were listed simply as "bean salad" or "roasted bean salad". They varied a bit from each other but both contained beans (one red beans the other white cannelini beans I believe). They were both served cold. I found your recipe on the site for the bean salad but the one I ate did not contain egg, onion, tomatoes. And I do not remember tasting any lemon flavoring. Any assistance on what this dish I had might be, I would greatly appreciate!

At 12:36 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

I wish I could tell you which salad it is. Variety is to large in
Turkish Cuisine. At least you could give me the other ingredients, it can't be only beans...was tahini in it?

Hi Binnur,

Do you have a recipe for Kisir? I can't seem to find it! By the way, this is an awesome site!!

I've already posted the Kisir which is

Hi Binnur,

I have to say how much I've enjoyed your site, found it a couple of days ago while looking for a pide recipe.

Two questions I would like to ask you, first one being a long shot but here it goes, at a resturant we had spoon salad which was basically finely chopped salad with paprika flakes and I presumed lemon and oil but when I tried to make it I failed totally, any hints? No2 at the same place we had bread like balloon bread but the size of a plate, would this be the same bread as the big long one and have you posted the recipe for it?
Have to add lentil soup was a big hit, thanks

Hi Sharon,
Thank you:) For the dressing, you may use pomegranate paste or sumac instead of lemon juice.
I haven't posted the balloon bread recipe yet:)
Basically, all the breads are made of yeast, flour and water.
Baking techniques or styles can be different.
Take care,

Hiya Binnur,
I am new to your delicious site, but from now on will be a regular visitor.
I was recently in Turkey and my Mother in law made bread and broke it into little peices and placed into a large bowl, she then added garlic and yogurt all over the bread but im not certain on quite how she did this, this appetizer was very nice and i forgot to get the recipe from her. I would really like to have a try at this recipe, so is there any chance you can help me?
Many, many thanks for this wonderful site and for any help you can give.
Kendine iyi bak!

At 11:59 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Ellie,
Thank you:) It is a classic, rustic Turkish dish. I personally have it 1-2 times a week as a light lunch! I am going to post it in the future.
Sende kendine iyi bak:)

Hi Binnur,
I just found your site and am extremely grateful you have created it.
I am absolutely hooked on an appetizer that I get at a local Turkish restaurant, they call it Havuc Kavurmasi. They say it contains cooked ground carrots, olive oil, garlic and yogurt.
I would love to have the recipe to try to make this at home. (I am spending way too much on this a month.)
I hope you can help me out.

Would this salad suit a tahini dressing made with olive oil,tahini,lemon juice, garlic and fresh flat leaf parsley.
I would also like to say that this is an great site and i have enjoyed a few of your recipes.

At 10:16 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Binnur
I was very fortunate to have Turkish Neighbours in Denmark and sometimes they invited me over to eat with them, They made a very yummy salad - sort of iceberg salad cut very fine but the salad had like a salty taste, must be the dressing - maybe lemon juice & salt but it was a very fresh and filling salad that could be eaten by it self, I would like to know if you can help me with the recipe.

çok teşekkürler

Kind regards Anna

Is it Kidney Bean Salad? If it is, I've already posted it.

Do you have a recipe for Dana Sogush. I had this salad last night in a restaurant and it was terrific. It had corriander, salad leaves, beef strips, red chilli, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion all in a lemon and olive oil dressing. I think! I guess there was other ingredients and the balance will be important. I would love to recreate it. Thanks, Janey

Merhaba Binnur,
I've been enjoying your website and your book for some time now. Thank you for posting all these wonderful recipes. I was wondering if you are familiar with “ayran kofte” recipe. My mother in law made kofte I think from bulgur and soaked them in yoghurt. Also, I was hoping to make some Turkish style tomato paste at home. Would you have any suggestion how to do this (I was hoping to dry tomatoes in the oven instead of sun). Thank you.

At 2:10 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Fatima,
It is called Köfteli Ayran Çorbası or Köfteli Yogurt Çorbası. Probably I am going to post the recipe this winter:)

Hello Binnur,

I always use your site to create new and delicious meal idea's, thank you.
Could you in future create more cold salad / dishes like cold chicken pasta salads, more cold potato salad variations etc as they are great side dishes.

The Turkish yogurt tastes very different from Greek yogurt you buy in the USA or any other yogurt. What is the secret??? I would like to try and make my own Turkish style yogurt. Do you have a recipe?

At 3:19 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Sherine,
Thank you:) I would love to help but I need more information, please clarify it:)
If it is soup, it may be Tarhana Soup (posted under the Soups section) made with red pepper, tomato, onion, flour, yeast and etc. But when you say it was a side dish, I am not sure about it:)

When I lived in London, I frewuently ate doner kebab with white cabbage salad on top. The cabbage seemed softer somehow, not completely crunchy as it is whn raw. Do you have any idea how they did this? I have tried cooking the cabbage a couple of minutes, but that wasn't anything like it, and I tried salting it. Maybe I didn't leave the salt on long enough? Any suggestions welcome! Thanks
