I have to agree with the first reviewer - the flavors don't really work. This wasn't ghastly but it wasn't great either. Thanks anyway. (PS I meant to say this earlier - for a nice neat poached egg, bring the water/salt/vinegar to a boil, turn down the heat, then stir the water vigorously so that it is swirling around. Crack the eggs in the center of the swirl. Turn the heat up to medium, and simmer until it is as soft or as hard as you want. You've got yourself a nice neat poached egg!)

My husband is originally from Istanbul...I told him about this recipe and he said he would make it for me. I was almost done inhaling mine when he asked if I needed a spoon...I told him I needed a longer tongue so I could lick the enitre bowl. This dish is AMAZING. I can't wait to have my parents over for breakfast...this will blow them away. We usually have nice breakfasts on the weekends but I've started making this for myself ont he weekedays before I go to work!
