Celery Stew with Lamb

(Kuzu Etli Terbiyeli Kereviz)

Celery Stew with Lamb
1 medium celery root, peeled and cut in bite sizes
1 1/2 or 2 cups water with 1/2 lemon juice
150 gr lamb, cut in cubes
1 cup hot water
1 small carrot, peeled, washed, sliced
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 egg yolk

1 tbsp dill, chopped

Wash the celery pieces and soak using the 1 1/2 or 2 cups of water with lemon juice to prevent them from darkening.

Meanwhile cook the lamb cubes with their own juice. Then add 1 cup hot water and cook over low heat until the lamb pieces are tender. Then add the celery pieces with the 1 1/2 or 2 cups water with lemon juice, carrot, butter, flour, salt and pepper, stir. Put the lid on and cook for about 20 minutes on medium heat until the celery pieces are softened.

Whisk the egg yolk in a small bowl. Take a ladle of juice of the dish and blend well with the egg. Slowly pour this mixture into the pot while stirring. Cover the lid and simmer for about 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle some dill all over and serve.

2-3 servings.

Is the Celery Stew with Lamb filling enough for a main dish? Also, would it taste alright as a meal with Ramadan pide, Fried Egglplant with cheese, and a Chocolate Pear Pie or Baklava? My family is soon hosting a themed dinner party and were thinking of doing turkish food. Would these meal ideas be ok? THANKS BINNUR

Hi Anna:)
You can find Celery Root which is Kereviz in Turkish at every super market or any seller of fruits and vegetables or any open air market (bazaar) in Turkey.

Binnur, I love your website! My husband and I love celery roots. Can I try this with chicken breast instead of lamb?
