I used several of your recipes for a Turkish Meal last night for my brother who is going to Istanbul next week. I had such FUN making everything and the shrimp balls are amazing. We enjoyed everything so much. I put pictures on my foodie blog if you get a chance to have a look!

Hello Binnur! Thank you so much for your cookbook! Its amazing! We live in NY and we couldn't find any similar websites over here.
I have a quick question to above recipe: where should we add 1 cup of water/chicken broth?
Thanks in advance!
