Hello @GirlsAskGuys Community,
Turkey is often a country whose cuisine is associated with meaty kebab dishes doner sandwiches, and lahmacun; where essentially the food revolves around beef or lamb. Although finding Turkish foods with meat isn’t difficult, the vegetarian variety is also plentiful even if you’re eating out often.
Menemen (Turkish Omelet)
As per my knowledge spicy, runny egg dish with onions, tomatoes, and green peppers is commonly found at bus stations, diners, and the table of many Turkish homes.
Menemen is a breakfast food that’s not an uncommon sight at dinners and is best eaten with plenty of bread to soak up the left over juices.
In India the omelette commonly includes finely chopped green chili peppers and onions (or shallots), finely chopped fresh green coriander, salt, and zeera (cumin).
Coban Salatasi (Shepherd’s Salad)
A mix of chopped tomatoes, cucumber, along with onions, that are usually topped with dill or parsley in a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Few people said me that amost every restaurant in Turkey will have coban or Choban. 🤔 Even I don't know how to pronounce it. 😛 Is it correct? Please tell me in your opinions which is on the menu and if not, it’s just about the easiest dish to whip up in the hotel or hostel.
In India onion-tomato-cucumber salad tossed with indian spices and herbs.
Chickpeas are one of the traditional peasant foods in Turkey that also tend to be vegetarian. Good Indian use the word ‘tend’ since some restaurants and cooks will flavor this (and other vegetable dishes) with a bit of ground beef.
In India Chickpeas are regular at home we have many recipes from chickpeas like Chickpea Biryani, Chickpeas Bhatura, Chickpea Salad, Spinach Chickpea or South Indian Chickpea Starters etc.
Zeytinyagli Dolma (Stuffed Grape Leaves Or Peppers In Olive Oil)
Both of these dolmas (leaf sarmasi for grape leaves or pepper dolmasi for stuffed peppers) also have meat versions that are served hot but these "zeytinyagli", or in-olive oil, dolmas come cold and filled with rice is an example of stuffed grapes.
Sometimes refereed to as the Greek “tzatziki” Turkish cacik is a more watery version of this yogurt, salt, and cucumber mix. Served as an appetizer. In this case also Good Indian is unaware about pronounciation probably it is "Ja JUK" which is spiced up a bit with salt, olive oil, garlic, and dill as a base and Turkish Restaurants.
In India we have "Raita" the yoghurt-based condiment, is one of the most loved dishes in Indian cuisine. It forms an integral part of regional in which things such as cucumber, beetroot, carrot, onions, pomegranate, etc. are used.
Why This Take?
India Strongly Believe in Concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam is a Sanskrit phrase found in Hindu texts such as the Maha Upanishad, which means "the world is one family".
