Testi Kebab

Turkish Testi Kebab are cooked in a clay pot or jug which helps preserve the freshness, flavors and aroma as ingredients are cooked slowly in their own juices. This dish is inspired by our trip to Turkey, we tried these in Cappadocia and Istanbul. #HappyCookingToYou #SimplySufi #SufiOilandGhee
