Turkish Keskek with Shepherd’s Salad and Gozleme
A delicious and wholesome Turkish celebration dish with heavenly sides...
Keskek is a ceremonial meat and wheat dish eaten in Anatolia in Turkey, traditionally cooked in huge cauldrons for weddings and other large celebrations. Marinated lamb is cooked in an aromatic broth with wheat and chickpeas, then topped with a brown butter flavoured with Urfa and Aleppo chilli flakes.
Here we’re serving it with delicious homemade Turkish flatbreads known as gozleme, made with a nigella and sesame seed dough and stuffed with leeks, red pepper paste, wild mint, sumac and more smoky Urfa chilli. On the side we’ve a cucumber yogurt sauce known as cacik and a simple Shepherd’s salad.
