This is a welcome to Turkish food recipes in this episode .
I have a delicious recipe for potato lovers .
It is easy to make in a pan with crunchy crust and cheesy filling in the middle .
It goes well in any time of day , especially with a glass of Turkish tea .
And of course , since we are in Ramadan , it is a great option for Sahur Time too .
So let's get started .
I will cook six medium size potatoes .
I undercook them as you see , I taste with knife .
It is still hard how they cooked .
This is an important step when they cook , drain them right away .
Don't leave them in the hot water because if you do it soaks water while cooling which we don't want .
So after it is cooled down , I am going to peel them and great with the large side of the grate .
The beauty of this recipe , you can make it ahead and keep in the refrigerator until you cook for the morning or so .
I'm going to use the egg yolk .
I will keep the white for other use .
I'm going to add one teaspoon each salt , red pepper flakes and ground black pepper .
I'm also going to eat about two tablespoon cornmeal first .
I'm eating one tablespoon and see how it goes .
And last , but not least , I'm adding 34 tablespoons , olive oil for the taste and the texture .
When you stir it will begin to stick together , you may add more olive oil if needed or if it is too wet because of the potatoes .
Maybe you can add more cornmeal .
I have medium size nonstick pan .
I have grated cheese in the bowl .
And in the other one , I have large cheese which is kind of ritto .
I will mix them together .
You can use whatever cheese you have or mix of leftover cheeses as well .
So I drizzled some olive oil in the pan .
And at this moment , I decided to make an outer coating for my potatoes and to make it look like a so I sprinkled some but since the vermis pasta fried golden brown , it became a little too hard .
We still like it .
But if you don't prefer , you can Sprinkle some if you have or cornmeal or even bread crumbs can be tried or you can leave it just plain too .
If you have other suggestions on your mind , please share in the comments .
After the coating , I placed one layer of potato and pressed down tightly .
You may dip your hand to water to prevent sticking and also make the potato layer thin for a better taste .
Don't use half of it .
If it is going to be very thick , it might change .
Depend on your pan size .
After the potato , I put the cheese layer and coat it with another layer of potatoes in here .
I figured out dipping my hand to water and you see how easy it is now to shape it .
I sprinkled vermicelli pasta over too and drizzle more olive oil on top .
So we are ready to go to our lovely stove to cook it .
I wanted to press a little more with the back of a glass and I cooked my potato in a medium heat .
It takes about five minutes on one side .
You can check it from the side to see if it is brown .
I use the flat lid that I use to turn things like or fish .
When I bake in the pan , you can use a plate with kitchen towel to not burn yourself .
It is better if it fits inside the pan .
Mine was bigger for this .
I drizzled more olive oil to the pan before transferring again and cook the other side .
I turned over 12 times more to cook until I heard the desired color on both sides .
Actually , I had a hard time here till it was too slippery that to show you on the camera .
I was almost going to drop this beautiful thing for two times .
It was really a thrilling moment for me .
So I decided to rush to the cutting board .
Anyway , I sprinkled some chopped pumpkin seeds to imitate pistachios over .
What do you think ?
Is it looks the same .
Let me show you the inside .
It was so delicious with the cheese layer .
Maybe next time I put more cash or mozzarella cheese .
I bake the left old potato the next day as a petty and they turn out great too .
You can also shape and freeze them to use later .
So they would be a saver for rush time .
I think .
I hope you try and like the recipe .
