NALAN’S IFTAR INVITE
Selam, my friends! May peace be upon you all in this glorious month of Ramadan. I hope you are doing well during these long summer days. These summer days and months are rolling along quite quickly and we have already completed the 13 day of this Mubarek month. This past weekend, my dear friend Nalan, welcome us to her beautiful home and prepared us a feast that completely memorized us all and took us back home.
An Istanbul Napkin Holder! The biggest hit of the night, along with this tea glass.
Roasted red peppers in yogurt
Homemade Hummus topped with roasted pine nuts & Turkish Pastirma
Nalan’s homemade chopped meat filled borek (meat pies)
Individual Shepperd salads
Saute of vegetables – squash, eggplant & onions, topped with a simple tomato sauce
Fresh Pinto Beans cooked in extra virgin olive oil
Turkish Style Zucchini Fritters
Turkish Tea & Gullac
A thin Turkish dry fillo prepared in a lightly sweet milk base topped with nuts. Especially prepared in Ramadan, it is very light and simply delicious. Can be found at Gulluoglu Baklava shops in New York & New Jersey locations.
