Nihalcigim,
Aslinda ben tarifte belirtmegi unutmusum ama benim aldigim baklada senin bahsettigin gibiydi. Iyice ayiklayinca yerken problem olmuyor aslinda. Ben baklayi gorunce taze mi degil mi hic bakmadan aliyorum. Burada bulmak pek kolay olmuyor da.
Tarife gelince; acikcasi benim bakla icin bildigim tek tarif bu, annemin tarifi. Tavsiye ederim sarimsakli yogurtla cok lezzetli oluyor.
