This dish of apples and meat patties from southeastern Anatolia can also be prepared with pekmez – grape syrup (p. 173) – instead of sugar. Dizme means “lined up” and refers to the way the apples and köfte are arranged in the pan.


  • 500 g/1 lb hard cooking apples

Core the apples and slice in rings 1.25 cm/1/2 inch thick. If the apples are large, cut them in half and then slice them.

Knead the mince well with the cloves and salt and make köfte the same size
