I should have listened to you and used beef not lamb. The combination of local, very fresh free range lamb and the butter was over the top RICH! I didn't know how much onion to use because it wasn't indicated in the ingredients' list. (I used one medium.) Fresh mint and parsley from our garden. I didn't bother peeling the Persian cucumbers and the combination of richly flavored beef/pasta with the cacik was delicious! I liked the flavor especially of the paprika mixed in with the pasta, too. Reviewed for NA*ME Tag. Come join us in this ongoing tag game!
Wonderful dish! I used to make this with cumin and paprika only but will make it with baharat from now on (I used Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix ). My yoghurt was Greek sheep yoghirt. Served this with grilled eggplant and bell pepper. Thanks for sharing!
