I'd like to cook Turkish food for a Turkish friend who is homesick. I'm used to Levant style food cooked in UAE. I have never cooked Turkish food before. I desperately need your help.
He has requested for Patlican Salatasi, Karniyaki and bread.
Is Patlican Salatasi is same as mutabbal or different? I have searched but I found so many different variations that I'm not sure which one to go for. From what I learned from my friend is the chopped eggplant mixed with other veg is called baba ganoush there and patlican salatasi is a dip. Which is why I'm thinking mutabbal but I'm not sure about the spices. Any help?
Any good authentic recipe for karniyaki/eggplants stuffed with ground lamb?
I have only made pide before. What other breadsshould I try to make? Which recipes to follow?
I'd highly appreciate if someone kindly point me to a diretion where I can learn about the cuisine itself.
Thanks in advance.
