I am a Canadian who has been living in Turkey for nearly five years, and although I can easily access all of these lovely foods in restaurants it is great to be able to actually make them at home. Do you have a recipe for ezogelin corbasi? I love it and would be delighted to be able to come home to it at night in winter ;-)

Yup, I do have the recipe for Ezo Gelin Corbasi. I am going to post it

Hi Binnur,

GREAT site! I love it.

One of my favorite Turkish dishes is iskembe corbasi (tripe soup). I have made it a few different ways, and I would love to get your recipe. (People who turn up their noses at the mere mention of "tripe" are missing out!)

Hi again Binnur,

I have posted a few comments before about the peppers and the lamb.

I also wanted to know about a soup.

My friends babbanne was making a soup. I saw little bits of her making it but not alot. What i saw was first she was boiling water then after that she added some powder or paste and that turned it like a light red orange colour. I know that it was a heart warming soup and was good in the winter.

I dont think that it was Tarhana or Ezogelin.

Teşekkürler Sam,

Hi Sam,
If it is not one of them, maybe it is instant soup made in Turkey:) I
really need a name for this soup. There is a large verity of Turkish
dishes. Every region of Turkey has their own dishes comes with their
ingredients. It is very hard to tell the name of dish with a little

Hi Binner

Can you please post the recipe for Arpa Sehriye Corbasi..

Also what is you buy it at a bakkal or just a normal supermarket.


At 8:38 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Sam,
I will post Arpa Sehriyeli Corba for you:) Bulgur is a grain, which is in a different size. It depends on it's size so you can make pilaf or kofte or some other dishes. I buy Bulgur from a Turkish Grocery, but it is also possible to find them from a local super market in a box. Also, sells them. I posted a few different types of Bulgur Pilaf, please take a look at the pictures to get some ideas about it:)
If you like Arpa Sehriyeli Corba you may also like Chicken Soup with Rice, here is the address;

Thanks Binnur,

I Found that my friends babbanne was making Tarhana. I made tarhana a while ago but ended up throwing it away. I did that beacuse as i was drying it out, it bacame like a hard dark yellow colour and the middle wasnt drying out. Also when the dough was making in the bowl, it beacame a light to dark yellow on to but when i needed it, it was fine. I really want to try Tarhana. Do you know where i could buy it from or please tell me what i did wrong.

Also i would like to thank you for your site. It is a fantastic site. It happens to be my favourite site.

The next thing i hope to make will be Lachamcun.

Thanks Binnur

At 5:36 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Sam,
Thank you:) I have already posted Tarhana recipe, if you like, try it:) Seems to me, waiting time was too long which spoiled the dough. When you try to dry it out, make small pieces and turn them under the sun occasionally. Or put the dough in the small Ziploc bags, keep them in the freezer. As I mentioned earlier, has so many variety of Turkish food, you can find Tarhana Soup there as well:)

Hello Binnur

Thankyou for the recipes- and for making them so available! I dreamed the other night of a Turkish soup that I used to eat in a restaurant in Sydney- I think it contained wheat and lemon juice, somehow... (!). It was pale, smooth, quite weak and lemony (and vegetarian). Does this ring a bell? I'd love the recipe if you know of it!

Thanks in advance!

Dear All,

I love Pacha Corbasi , can you possibly post the recipe here? I have read some recipe of Pacha corbasi on the internet but it doesn't looks quite like the one i tasted in the restaurant, the one I had was very creamy , seemd like they put yoghurt in it, the soup appears to be in white colour and not clear soup. Do you have the recipe for that ?

If I can find Pacha here I am going to post it as soon as posible:)

Hi Binnur

I reached at your site looking for a turkish recipe. You have a nice site and from comments, it looks like you a great cook too.

I have a question which I am looking for an answer for last 6 months :) but I have not found the answer. I visited Finland sometime back and that was my first time I tried turkish food. It was great. The recipe that I am looking for is for a soup. They served us a soup which seems to have orange juice and vanilla. I crave for it but I do not know how to cook that. If you can guide me that will be very nice of you.


At 8:11 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Achint ,
I don't think it is a soup. We don't have orange soup in Turkish cuisine. It may be dessert. I've already posted a similar dessert which is called Sultan's Jello.

Hi Binnur!

Thank you for this wonderful website! I can't wait to try all of your fantastic recipes!!

I lived in Adana for 11 years and STILL dearly miss the wonderful Turkish food! My only question though, is at lunch time my dad and i would just stop in those little Cafe type restaurants where they have all the food just ready for you to choose and pick out; and one of my favorites was a Red soup that i only remember calling Fasulye, and it had white kidney beans in it, w/ a few chunks of meat in it.. i think... do you have a recipe for that or what it is called? it was a type of tomato soup.. I always added rice to it and ate it w/ ekmek! thanks so much I'd greatly appreciate you getting back to me! :)

When I'm in Turkey, I always eat the standart Çorba in cheap cafeterias, with a reddish-orange colour, I think it's made out of mashed chickpeas and it's NOT a wedding soup, as I've eaten it in alomst every region of Turkey, in standart cafes, so can you tell me which of those recipes stand for my favorite Çorba? =D

Merhaba Binnur!!,

First at all congratulations for your blog and your cookbook!!.

I couldn't find any webside in my language (Spanish) with good plenty traditional Turkish recipes so you can't imagine how happy i was when i found your blog!!.

My boyfriend (and future husband) is Turkish, from Kușadasɩ, he'll move to Spain to be able to be together after years living in the distance...(too hard)so I want him to feel like at home when he is far away from his loved country so I'm learning to cook Turkish food (wish he won't miss too much his mother's food...haha). He loves soups and I found lots of them in your blog!!, how nice!!. And he is lucky i love to cook!.

I'm happy Turkish and Spanish food are so similar, we use the same ingredients...and our loved olive oil. When I was in Turkey everybody asked me all the time if i liked the food, they were very surprised when i told them we use the same ingredients and even some recipes are quite similar.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with all of us. Teşekkürler!!!.

Binnur Hanım,

Elinize ve kaleminize sağlık!

Kelle paça is the name of one soup. There is a Corbacı in Kadıköy that sells it. But it is more common in Iran than in Turkey, so Alinjonok may have better luck reading Persian cooking sites to find it. Kelle means head in Farsi, and I think paça is foot or knee.

Do you have a recipe for the traditional food lebeni that one can find in Urfa and Harran? I am not sure if it is considered a soup, but it is souplike, so I'm asking about it here.

Thanks so much for your lovely site!

I was served a soup near Izmir in winter that was slow cooked mutton with lots of hot chillies in it (Pul Biber?). I have been unable to find a recipe for that blazing hot soup.

It is called Gerdan Çorbası (lamb neck soup). I will post it in the near future:)

I just found your blog and think I am in heaven.

Many years ago I lived next door to the Otel Tunali and the restaurant there had the best Borscht soup I have ever had in my life. I have lived in Russia and their Borscht can not hold a candle to the Turkish version. Hence, do you have a recipe you may share?

Thank you,

Thank you Yvette:) I wish I could get a chance to taste their Borscht soup. It's in my bucket list.

Thank you for such a valuable collection of delicious recipes!
I am in search of a recipe my Grandmother used to make. It is a soup that has a broth/yogurt base with sauteed onions. There are farina dumplings that she used to wrap in bean leaves, and she would add prunes to the soup as well. It had a sweet and sour flavor. I was hoping you have a recipe to share with me? Thank you so much!

Hi Linda,

Thank you! It is called "Kiraz yaprağı sarması - from Malatya"

The leaves to roll can be bean or sour cherry or quince or even mulberry. If I get a chance to obtain the leaves, I am going to make it and post for you. I think your grandmother used farina as a filling. The cracked wheat can be used as well:)

Take care,

Yes! This sounds very similar, but there are prunes in the soup as well. She did use farina as a filling in the beans-leaf dolmas. Is there a soup that is similar to this description as well?Thank you so much for helping me find this reipe. It is so important to me to honor her memory by cooking her favorite dishes.

Hi Linda,
Your grandmother seems to have used prunes instead of the plum syrup/vinaigrette. Dried fruits as well as fresh ones are used a lot in classic Turkish cuisine. This is the only soup I know that matches your recipe:)

Hi Binnur,
My sister fell in love with a thick, chunky, creamy onion soup when she was in Didim. Do you have the recipe please? (It had a slice of cheese toast in the bottom of the soup bowl too). Thanks in advance x
