Armenians call it Merjimek Kufteh, but it's very similar and one of my favorite dishes in the world. I can eat a whole batch by myself. I think when you say curly, you mean parsley, right?

another Turkish recipe that I'll definitely give it a try.
Btw, since you are Turkish I ate once a sort of pastry called Kombe, don't know if I spelled it right. It was made with sort of yufka sheets but yeast was used in the batter (versus yufka which doesn't)and filled with herbs and cheese. Do you have any idea what I'm talking about? If you do, can you post the recipe, please? Thank you
