Turkish warm salad

Fēi Fēi rice balls (米球菲菲)

I learned this recipe during my stay in Turkey in Fethiye, where I had the opportunity to volunteer at Adrenalin Village.
Emir Taylar taught it to me and prepared it for dinner. It is delicious and very simple, as we have discussed in this section.

  • 4-5 large fresh carrots
  • 2 garlic
  • 1/4 litre of yogurt
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Parsley
  • A lot of affection

  • A frying pan
  • A large bowl
  • A peeler
  • A grater
  • Knife
  • A mortar

First peel the carrots and grate them on the same pan (Fig. 1), add a little oil and salt (Fig. 2). Leave on low heat so that the carrots cook little by little and soften, but do not burn (Fig. 3).

Leave it to simmer for a few minutes (Fig. 3).

While we go to crush the garlic with a little salt in the mortar and then mix them with the yogurt and a little more salt. We reserve (Fig. 4).

When the carrot has finished cooking, let it warm for about 20/30 minutes (Fig. 5) and then mix it with the yogurt we had prepared before (Fig. 6).

Spread this mixture on a serving dish and sprinkle a little chopped parsley on top. Ready. It’s that easy.

Enjoy your meal!

A few tips

We can serve it warm or cold, previously cooled in the refrigerator.

  • It is a magnificent salad to accompany any dish or take alone.
  • If you are vegan, don’t worry, you can make the recipe with soy yogurt and it looks perfect.

As always I would love to know how you have done and if you liked this typical dish of Turkish cuisine. Thank you

If you liked the recipe, help others to cook with me. Thank you for sharing.
