    Annie in Istanbul's Note:

    I live in Istanbul,Turkey and recently I was at a restaurant where they served this fabulous meal. In Turkey, the plums are called Malta plums, a yellow, bruised looking plum that is sweet and sour in flavor. However, any sweet and sour fruit will do, for example, purple plums may work nicely. Fell free to adjust measurements of ingredients as I did when I made these the other day as I didn't get a recipe I just remembered the ingredients. If you aren't watching your weight, the fattier the lamb the better!
