Smart Tips

  • Choice of Pickles: You can use homemade pickles or store-bought ones. If using store-bought pickles, opt for those without artificial preservatives for a more authentic taste.

  • Salt Caution: Be cautious with the salt since pickled vegetables already contain salt from the brining process. It's best to taste and adjust accordingly.

  • Addition of Proteins: For a heartier version, you can add sautéed ground beef or chicken to the dish.

  • Pairing: Turşu Kavurması pairs wonderfully with grilled meats or rice dishes, offering a tangy counterpoint to richer flavors.

  • Storage: If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The flavors will further develop, making it even more delicious the next day!
