Gozleme Filling, Kurtulus, Istanbul


Gozleme Filling, Kurtulus, Istanbul, originally uploaded by - di.

I love gozleme.

Actually I love so many Turkish foods but potato gozleme is an absolute favourite.

Yesterday we returned to the organic market here in the city and were greeted by the lovely ladies who allowed us to photograph them making their gozleme last weekend. I've promised them copies of the photographs, it's just about organising the images and finding a print shop but anyway ...

I'm almost sure their gozleme is so good simply because so much laughter goes into the cooking of it.

Pictured are the bowls of full of gozleme filling ... the front is full of potato, then next is cheese I think and the back one was spinach and cheese. They pour some oil onto a yufka pastry that has been rolled into a big circle, add the filling, fold the pastry in half and cook the gozleme on some kind of warm metal ...

Oh yes, Kay :)

Istanbul, Van. I think it will defy all expectations but we need to talk about that some time.

It probably is, Lakeviewer. I need to check out a recipe one day, don't I. :)
