Something like cottage cheese...

A neighbour made something ( i cant remember the name) and dropped it in for the kids. We all loved it...and although i asked her how she made it..my attention span was more focussed on the kids painting each other with felt pens and the baby crying...! It looked and tasted like cottage cheese...but she'd added maydonas and i assume a little salca as it had a hint of tomato, and was a pinky red colour. So, if anyone knows anything that fits the description..please let me know. (i mention cottage cheese as she said something about boiling and curdling).

She also brought tortillas and the kids made wraps.

She's away for the winter now, and hoped i could show off my skills in the Spring when she's back!

Re: Something like cottage cheese...

Hi Mina..this is most likely either Lor or Çökelek
you can get Lor in Bim
çökelek comes from Hatay

theres not much difference between the two and both are curds..in cökelek the yoğurt is boiled and strained ..i think that yeast is added to Lor when they make it.
in Antakya they eat çökelek for breakfast with olive oil on top ..its also made into little cones with different spices again eaten at breakfast with olive oil added and its nice crumbled into a salad
i know you speak Turkish so this link will be interesting

Definitely çökelek - thanks Shirleyann. It was so yummy and always great to see the kids lick their plates after food x

Re: Something like cottage cheese...

A friend recently made a very good cottage cheese substitute by taking a softer cheese from the market and mashing it with a fork and then adding some natural yogurt and dried chives. It was excellent, I had no chives so I made some with pineapple and it was lovely.

I have had çökelek and it is very nice, I might use that next time as I now have some dried chives and I am going to try planting some seeds as well.

Re: Something like cottage cheese...

For a yummy pasta dish: make a fresh tomato sauce with lots of garlic but no onion, while the pasta cooks heat some olive oil to almost smoking point, drain the pasta. toss in the hot olive oil, add crumbled Lor (I expect cokelek would work equally well) stir well, serve with tomato sauce poured over.
