My mom used to prepare french fries this way for our breakfasts. I personally prefer this one over regular french fries.

  • 2 medium size of potatoes
  • 1 tsp of red pepper paste
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 clove of garlic (mushed )
  • salt
  • sunflower oil ( for frying )
Wash and peel potatoes. Cut them into bite size cubes. Take sunflower oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add potato cubes and fry, stirring occasionally. Take them in a mixing bowl.
Take 3 tbsp of sun flower oil from frying pan and add garlic, cumin, pepper paste, salt. Mix it well. Add this mixture into the french fries and stir. Take it in a serving dish.

Makes 2.

  • 1 Turkish pastry sheet
  • 4 tbsp of feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp of chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp of melted butter
    Mix cheese and chopped parsley with a fork.Cut the pastry sheet into 2 equal parts.Take the first half. Fold 1/4 of it in. Place the 1/2 of filling on this folded part.Fold the long sides in. At last, fold the bottom part and give it a square shape.
    Take 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place the square pastry in it and cover the lid. Turn it over and cook the other side too. You could spread some more butter for better taste if you desire. Follow these steps for the other half.
