Turkish cuisine is famous for its wide variety of dishes and ingredients. It is also one of the most popular cuisines in the world. We all heard of the doner and shish kebabs, koftas as well as the range of bread and drinks they have on offer. 

Turkish food culture is heavily influenced by the Ottoman Empire and can be considered as a refinement of Turkic - Central Asian,  Balkan, Middle Eastern, Armenian and other cuisines. Turkish food has a lot to offer for any taste buds, whether it’s spicy, salty or sweet.

Turks are very hospitable people and are known to be generous hosts when it comes to food. They love to share their dishes with others, which is why they have become so popular among foreigners, and has particularly shaped a lot of Middle eastern cuisine and those in the Muslim world in recent years.

These kebabs are made with chicken thighs. The result is juicier and tastier than chicken breast. That’s because chicken thighs are fatter. That fat also makes it easier to grill because it protects the meat from overheating and drying out.

Koftas are dumplings generally served in a sauce. Although you may find Kofta in your local Turkish restaurants, their origins are a little more skewed. Since we are talking about Turkish cuisine, you can consider this recipe as a fusion between Central and Southern Asian cultures.  Here is a simple recipe you can make, but you can also adapt it and use whatever other vegetables you have available to bring it all together. 

Grilled Chicken Shawarma - Genie Cooks

Although Shawarma originates in the Levant, it began in the period of the Ottoman Empire and the word’s etymology also comes from the Turkish word for ‘turning’ because of the rotisserie. Shawarma’s have recently gained much popularity in the west and are now available in Middle eastern / Turkish and even Indian fast food restaurants and takeaways. Of course, the best food always has to be the one you make at home and this is no different. It’s actually really simple and versatile to make and you can turn it into sandwiches, salads or even rice bowls.
