Merhaba Binnur,
I just came across your website and I am already addicted. I am excited about trying each and every one of your recipes, as I am want to surprise and why not, impress my husband. I am a Romanian with a Turkish heart (used to live in Istanbul for seven years in the 90’s and learned to cook there). I like many cuisines: Romanian, American, Mexican, French, Greek, but Turkish cuisine is the most popular cuisine in my kitchen. So thank you so very much for making me already look good in my husband’s eyes and let me score some points. I can’t wait to surprise him with his mom’s recipes.
Montreal’dan sevgiler,

merhaba binnur,

my turkish boyfriend had an aunt we used to stay with when we were in istanbul. she made the most amazing tomato dish that i have forgotten the name of. it was basically lots of fresh tomatoes cooked on top of the stove with lots of butter as the tomatoes cooked down, she would add more. after a longgggggg time, she would serve it over rice. it seemed very simple to make, but i can not seem to EVER get it right. can you help? also i want to make a baked patlijan, stuffed with tomatoes, onions, olive oil, etc. and topped with more oil and youghurt, but again i need a recipe. I LOVE YOUR SITE.

thank you, laura

Merhaba Laura,

Thank you:) I wish I knew from which region your boyfriend is. Pilaf with tomato sauce looks like Marmaris pilaf.
I am going to post Pilaf with Tomato Sacue for you in the future:)

It is hard to guess which eggplant dish you ask for. We have so many dishes with the eggplant:) It may be one of the following:

Fried Eggplant Strips with Summer Vegetables
(Kırlı Patlıcan Kızartma - Aydın - Aegean Region)
The Imam Fainted (Eggplant with Veggie Filling)
(Imam Bayildi)

I would suggest that you use the google search box on the right site of my blog, just below the google ads. When you select "TC", it will help you find all the recipes I have posted. You can also search for the word of any region, pilafs, vegetables, herbs, spices, meat, etc.

Wish you the best!
