My husband is originally from Istanbul...I told him about this recipe and he said he would make it for me. I was almost done inhaling mine when he asked if I needed a spoon...I told him I needed a longer tongue so I could lick the enitre bowl. This dish is AMAZING. I can't wait to have my parents over for breakfast...this will blow them away. We usually have nice breakfasts on the weekends but I've started making this for myself ont he weekedays before I go to work!
I have to agree with the first reviewer - the flavors don't really work. This wasn't ghastly but it wasn't great either. Thanks anyway. (PS I meant to say this earlier - for a nice neat poached egg, bring the water/salt/vinegar to a boil, turn down the heat, then stir the water vigorously so that it is swirling around. Crack the eggs in the center of the swirl. Turn the heat up to medium, and simmer until it is as soft or as hard as you want. You've got yourself a nice neat poached egg!)
That is a very good recipe, it is very light for the summer dinners...
Contrary to what the other reviewer wrote, I enjoyed the garlic taste. I used fat free yogurt instead of regular, however, and I did not use the full amount called for in the recipe. I also added some seasoning. I enjoyed this recipe.
Great recipe. If you don't like vinegar and garlic, don't make it. I love both. This is an authentic recipe for an original Turkish dish.
I loved this recipe! It is nice and garlicky. My only recommendation is to heat up the yogurt a bit so it doesn't make the eggs cold.
I love this recipe, which I actually found in another cookbook. Try adding chopped, fresh parsley to the butter, and if the garlic is too strong, add that to the butter sauce, too, to mellow it out some. A few hot pepper flakes are also a nice touch if you like a little more heat. Great dish!
This recipe is delicious! It's rich and creamy, and nonfat Greek yogurt worked perfectly for a healthier version. Even my super-picky teenagers liked it. I will be making this again, and often.
