      Hi, your recipe looks great! BTW I had a friend from Turkey who was cooking for me special dish: raw minced meat + spices+ greens + yogurt.
      I forgot how it’s called (it was like 10 years ago). Although the meat was raw, the whole combination was very delicious.
      He told me it’s a traditional dish. But whe I went to Turkey 6 years later I din’t see it anywhere.
      Please advise, do you know this dish?
