We travel to Turkey every year in April for a holiday. This recipe is as close as we can get to the hummus we enjoy each year during our stay there.

This is not a Turkish food. You can call this as an Arabic food but not Turkish. Try to categorize foods better so that people will not be disappointed when they meet with real Turks.
