Mucver recipe

As I know several people on this forum love mucver (and I am about to try making it for the first time), I thought it was time for a recipe post! Anyone else got a better recipe for this Istanbul favourite?

I have never tried it fried in hazelnut oil. It's usually the sunflower oil

Also the dip sauce seems like a personal touch of the owner of the recipe. It's mostly served with plain full fat Turkish yoghurt as a dressing.

There are a few experimental and refined recipes on the excellent Turkey's For Life blogsite - hope this link works!


Must say though that these ones in Istabuleats look far more like the great ones we have shared during our TA Meetups at Ev in London - the only ones I have eaten in Turkey itself have always been flat patties.

Good luck with the cooking!

Thank you. Similar to those done here in Texas, except no dill, but an addition of red pepper flakes.

Update on good cookbook available in English?

At Amazon there are numerous turkish cooking books (in English) available, for every taste.

I bought one in German on the Ortaköy (flee) market but I have to admit that very seldom I cook something along those recipes. It tastes different in Turkey - or from more talented cooks:-).

And themucver we ate at turkish friends in Germany have been more falt too, like our german "Reibekuchen" (fried potatoe pancakes)
