Recipe by dale7793

Delicious! You have to give this a try. Can also be cut into fingerfood sized portions.

To me, a Turkish (excluding desserts) dish has to have that cumin seed flavour so I added about 2 tsp of ground cumin to the filling. I made Turkish bread myself and baked the doughs stuffed with the filling, a bit like making calzone from scratch. For this, I had to reduce the volume of the filling a bit and hence did not incorporate crushed tomatoes but it still worked ok and was v. yummy!
