      Yummy, my mum makes the Turkish Cypriot version of this, but she could never tell me the recipe because she uses estimates with her hands for the amounts. So I'm glad I found a similar recipe that we all enjoyed. The only change I did was I used egg substitute otherwise kept to the recipe. The taste was wonderful. Thank you Allybee Z
