Hi Carol,
What a nice story, I loved it:) There are some variations for Kiymali
Pilav (Pilaf with Ground Beef) on the ingredients other than ground
beef and rice. Do you remember what kind of vegetables were in it? It
can be a mixture of sweet peas, carrots and potatoes or just grated
tomatoes or would help me to give you exactly what you
are asking:)

Wonderful recipes! Your site makes me wish for Istanbul. I'm wondering if you have a rice recipe I ate in Istanbul. It had zucchini and fresh mint in it. Does this sound like a recipe you might know of? Thanks. Susan

On the site, below the google ads on the right, there's a search box. So you can search on my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to find any recipe that I post.
Take care,

Do you have a recipe for Perde Pilav? My American parents absolutely loved it when they came to visit us in Turkey (my husband is Turkish) and have asked us to make it for them when they come to visit over the holidays (this time in America).

Thanks for this great website! I often turn to it when trying to decide what to cook for dinner and everything always turns out great :))

At 11:44 AM, Blogger Binnur said...

Thank you:)I have a pretty long wish list and Perde Pilavi is one of
them. I am going to post in the future:)

Hi Binnur,

My name is Leila and I live in Canada. I have been searching for Turkish Recipies, I could say for years. I have not found a nice, well put together, easy direction recipes. I'm so glad I have your website from a friend of mine. Thank you so much for your effort, and making life easier for me. I love every recipe you have. Sagol! :-)

please can you add a recipe for split wheat, dogme bugday, as a salad/pilav/side rather than a porridge or pudding. as an experiment until you tell me better I am going to try with mint, lemon zest, olives, and capers. Can you suggest something more authentic. Thank you very much joel from london

Salam Binnur,

I want to tell you that your website is VERY helpful and successful Mashallah. I tried the rice pudding, and it turned out EXCELLENT. Im intenting to buy your book Inshalla because I want to have it in my kitchen. By the way you have a beautiful name and I m going to name my first born daughter Binoor. I know the spelling is different because Im Moroccan and my husband is Turkish cypriot, and we were looking for a modern name that Turks and Arbs familiar with it. the meaning of Binoor in arabics is With Noor/light.
I m sorry if I wrote a so long email.
Sha'eban Mubarak.

Selam Meriem:)
I appreciate all the comments and mails. Please do not hesitate to write to me anytime.
It is so nice to be given my name your first born daughter. I am honoured! Thank you:)
"Bin" means thousand, "nur" means light in Turkish.
I wish you all the best!
