Wednesday, June 23, 2010

A few days ago i have cooked ali Nazik kebap, and the eggpland food there i cooked original name is hünkarbeğendi, "Hünkarbeğendi" in turkish mean is "Sultan liked", i think that food has been cooked in Ottoman palaces for sultans ,thats why it got this name,it s funny right:))
even sultans liked so most of people suppose to like this food even if they dont like eggplant, the béchamel sauce give great taste into eggplant.. but my mum complain about i cooked too often Hünkarbeğendi so i think i should stop for sometime to cook eggplant:)


1 kg chicken, chopped
2 onions
3 green peppers
2 clove garlic
2 tomato
1 sp tomato paste
black pepper

For Hünkarbeğendi

6 pieces of eggplant
1 tablespoon flour
1 cups milk
2 gl cheese

Put butter into pot. Add chooped onions,green peppers,garlic,tomatos,tomato paste and gently turn,and add also salt and black pepper. after some min add chickens and cook it for 10 minutes. On the other side of eggplant are grilled over a fire or oven tray. melt some butter, add flour a tablespoon,cook it a bit and while you are adding cold milk,keep mix it till it get a bit solid. after our Béchamel sauce s ready add roasted and chopped eggplants and 1/2 gl of cheese, salt and mix it ,andddd it s ready. if your chicken also cooked..lie chickens in a tray and your hünkarbeğendi on it and add top your cheese.
cook it in oven till the cheese get brown..
Bon appetit...
