  • Cilbir - Turkish Soft-Boiled Eggs (4 servings).

    Homemade Simit - Turkish Bagel (5 to 6 simits).



    Soft-Boiled Eggs

    • 2 cups whole plain Greek yogurt
    • 3 cloves garlic mashed
    • 2 pinches of sea salt
    • 4 organic eggs
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • Mix of pink peppercorn, coriander and pepper to taste
    • ½ tsp ground curry powder
    • ½ teaspoon chili pepper of your choice
    • 2 tablespoons dill, chopped

    Turkish Bagels

    • 500 g (4 to 4 1/3 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
    • 300 ml (1 ¼ cups) warm water
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    For the coating of turkish bagels

    • 300 grams (about 2 cups) toasted sesame seeds
    • 3 teaspoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon flour
    • 50 ml (½ cup) water


    Turkish Soft-Boiled Eggs

    1. The yogurt
      Put a little water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a minimum. Let the water simmer.
    2. Put the yogurt, garlic and salt in a round-bottom metal bowl and place it over the saucepan. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water. Stir the yogurt until it is warm to the touch. The consistency should resemble a lightly whipped cream.
    3. Turn off the heat and leave the bowl on top of the saucepan.
    4. The butter
      Gently melt the butter in a small saucepan until it starts to brown.
    5. Stir in the mix of pink peppercorn, coriander and pepper, curry powder and chili.

    The eggs

    1. Bring salted water to the boil in a saucepan.
    2. Carefully place the 4 eggs and cook for 5 minutes. Put the eggs into a bowl of cold water to stop cooking and wait 5 minutes. Shell the eggs.
    3. In a plate or small bowl, pour the yogurt and drizzle the spiced butter. Place the eggs on top and add the dill. Serve with a simit (Turkish bagel).

    Homemade Simit (Turkish Bagel)

    1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
    2. In a bowl, combine flour, yeast and salt. Gradually add warm water and form into a ball. Knead for 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and not sticky. You can also use a stand mixer with a dough hook for this step. Cover the dough with a clean damp cloth and leave to rise for about 1 hour until it doubles in size.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, water and flour. Set aside. Place the sesame seeds in a bowl. If the sesame seeds are raw, roast them in a pan.
    4. On a floured work surface, roll the dough into a long log and divide into 5 or 6 equal parts. Then cut each piece in half to make 10 to 12 pieces.
    5. For each simit, shape the pieces into a log about 40 cm (20 in.) long. Place two pieces side by side and pinch one end together. Twist them up to form a braid. Seal the last two ends by pinching them together and lay them down in a ring shape.
    6. For the coating, dip each simit in the honey mixture, then coat with sesame seeds. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
    Note for the eggs : You can add fresh mint for a touch of freshness. Note for turkish bagels : You can add a few drops of orange blossoms to the dough.
