Binnur i really need a recipe for dondurmasi...the turkish ice cream that u can stretch, please!! and a source for salep would be nice

At 8:54 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

It is very hard to do at home:) I have already posted Salep recipe, here is the address;

At 10:21 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

i actually meant a source to buy the salep, just the orchid powder not the mix, Im not sure if its available in the pure form in the states. thanks again

At 11:29 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

You can buy Salep from spice shops in Turkey. I think you may find it on the internet.

how do you make vanilla cake?

Made the Un Kurabiyesi (shortbread) for the second time today, this time with unsalted butter (previously saled marg) and the Catal(left out the mahlep - don't know if available in South Africa - can I replace with ground nuts?). Both delicious!

My sister and I started belly dancing recently - hence the interest in Turkish cooking (resulting in a Turkish party featuring only your recipes).

Thanks for a great website.

At 11:01 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Cantanho,
Thank you, I want to congratulate you and your sister, it is so cute to start to learn belly dancing. Your Turkish party will be unforgettable with it and Turkish dishes:)
Mahlep adds more flavour to the dough but you don't have to use it. With it or without it is still delicious. The dough of Catal doesn't accept nuts which changes the consistency of dough.
Take care,

hi, i love your site, i live in london and it's difficult to find authentic turkish food so i usually have to travel quite far just to get a borek! i love the recipes and was wondering if you had a recipe to make ekmek kadayifi, my family really loves it but it's not available here and i would like to make it for them, i don't know how to make the cake part and all the recipes i've found say to use a pre-made one but they are not available to buy in england :( thank you so much!

At 9:15 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Thank you:) It is very hard to do real Ekmek Kadayif dough, that's why I buy the ready-to-use ones too, sorry:)

Do you have a recipe for a bannana cream desert? I had it while in istanbul, it is a lovely filo dough pastry with a bannana cream filling. I love this desert and would be soooo very happy to be able to learn how to make it.
Tesekkurler, G.Duzguner

I never had this dessert before. But sounds to me it would be an adaptation from Laz Boregi....I am going to bake first...I'll post it in the future:)

I just wanted to tell you that I love your recipes. My best friend, Selda, is Turkish. I made Pirincli Ispanak at her house all by myself. Her and her mother watched me. They said I was really close to it tasting just like Selda's mother's. I just wanted to thank you for having up these authentic recipes. I now help cook with her family. This has helped me learn more about this great culture. I am still in high school. So this makes it wonderful. Thank you so much keep up these yummy recipes.

At 3:47 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi Nikki,
Thank you:) I am so glad that you cook Turkish dishes and share with your friend's family. You are a teenager and already great cook!

Hi Binnur,
First of all, I love your site. I'm soo far away from home and can't find any good Mediterranean/Turkish food around here. I was wondering if you might have a recipe for Turkish Delight? My wife is allergic to nuts, therefore she wouldn't be able to eat any I purchase, due to cross contamination.

Thank you for having soo many wonderful recipes to share. :)

hi, i need to make an impressive decorative turkish themed desert for a party.. any suggestions??

At 12:07 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

What kind of party you are throwing? It is a dinner party or open buffet lunch or dinner party? How many gussets will you have..... Please also check to get more ideas "Dairy Desserts" and "Cake & Cookies" sections, too.

At 2:35 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

hens party, 40+ people open buffet dinner party, so i need something that i can make into individual small servings that is not too messy to eat, im a kitchen queen so i can cope with something that is difficult or fiddly, but i just dont have any ideas for this one because im used to catering for kids or cocktail parties!! i do not know alot about turkish food! i also live in New Zealand which is at the bottom of the southern hemisphere so unusual ingredients may be difficult to come by!!

At 8:13 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

I will give you a of couple dessert names.They both are easy to cook, also
you can adjust the amount to be enough for your guests, like for
each person do 1or 2 apricot and 1 or 2 dry fig.
Dried Figs with Walnuts (Incir Tatlisi). - 1 or 2 days in advance,
sprinkle walnuts before serving
Apricot Dessert (Kayisi Tatlisi). 1 or 2 days in advanced, garnish on
the same day and keep it in the fridge.
I hope this helps and good luck!

Merhaba Binnur!

It was a great pleasure for me to discover this`s perfect... I was in Turkey 2 years ago and one of the famous desserts for me was some kind of cake, but I was not able to find out what was the name of it. My frend told me that she is not able to translate the name of it but it loks like "chicken breasts". Are you able to recognize it? If you are, please help me to find out the recipe.

Thank you in advance:)


At 7:59 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Merhaba Nana,
Thank you:) Tavuk Gogsu (chicken breast) is a dairy dessert, not cake. Which made real chicken breast and milk. So I am not sure what you are asking.
But I already posted the easy version of Creamy Pudding (Yalanci Tavuk Gogsu). You can find it under the Dairy Desserts section.

Tesekkurler Binur!!

That was dessert I waas thinking of, but it was a bit consistant not creamy so it makes me think that this is cake.

Thank you once more:)

I just recently found your website and i love that i can find all the traditional recipes that my Babaanne made for me.

Do you happen to have a turkish delight recipe? THe one with pistachio nut inside; sprinkled with icing sugar or cocnut? That is the best.

Hi Binnur, i went to Istanbul last year and tasted a pudding dessert at a restaurant which was made out of chicken. It was delicious, sweet and sort of stringy/chewy. Do you by any chance have that recipe if you know which dessert i'm talking about? Thanks in advance! :)
