Dugun Yahnisi
I haven't participated MasBar event for a long time, sooo miss to join it again, so here I come :D. I thought I was late, but as the good news the event is opened until December 9, 2011 ^^. The theme is CELEBRATION, so we have to submit a cooking that is usually served on a certain celebration. I then looked for food photos in my computer's cooking folder and found this Dugun Yahnisi (Turkish Wedding Stew). According to the magazine which I got the recipe from, this stew is often served on wedding parties in Turkey. It's so easy to make and the taste is really good. I reduced the amount of water suggested by the recipe and added more tomato paste. And... I really love the final result that was saucy and thick, definitely my favorite :D. Pouring it on pasta? Perfect! ^^
