TLF'rs Turkish recipes

As I'm now discovering on TLF some of the pastimes that are taking place over the winter months in Turkey are very interesting and informative . The posts regarding this had led me to try and gain some knowledge on your Turkish recipes whether they be authentic or mixed with elements of your own home lands. I'm sure others will be interested. I certainly will be.

One of my favourites :

Lamb stew with mash.

Fried lamb with fried chopped carrots and onion, buillion, salt & pepper and the best flavour of all is 7 spice. (Yedi baharat) hope that spelling is correct.
A little gravy mix or cornflour to thicken
Stew for a couple of hours.
Mash potato
Dumplings

Re: TLF'rs Turkish recipes

Thanks for the recipe but would it not be easier and cheaper in the long run to buy tinned beans ? I find that soaking then cooking takes SO long.

Yes it would be easier, but it is a pass-time in the winter, we are using our own onions, our own garlic, out own tomatoes and our own bay leaves (all organic), even the electricity to cook from is from PV.

Ah I don't know how the yanks make them. I up until recently I would make them from scratch but recently have found a packet mix in the uk which is perfect.

The suet recipe.
2oz suet
4oz s.r. flour
Half teaspoon salt
Water to mix to a dough.
A little parsley can bee added which is nice.

My 95 year old mum makes them with just flour and no suet.
10 table spoons of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
Half teaspoon salt
4 Oz butter
Half cup milk
Mix to a dough.

The benefit of having time in the winter months comes into play here and why not if there is time. Why have processed when you can have it natural especially when there is so much good stuff to be had in Turkey.

I actually forgot to mention that the barbunye beans come from next door's field. He plants about 10 000m3 and after they are picked tells us that we can take what we like from those that remain on the ground, by this time they have dried on the plant and are literally next door. Total distance from farm to fork 200m.
