Drape Pilaf (Perde Pilavi)

2 cups rice, washed and drained
~1 lb boneless chicken
1 cup almonds
1/3 cup pine nuts
2-3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp salt to taste
3 cups hot chicken broth

For the dough:
½ cup yogurt
½ cup oil
50 gr butter
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1-2 cups flour
A pinch of salt

Mix the dough ingredients and knead until it gets soft. Cover it to make airproof and set aside.
Boil the chicken and let it cool. Then, cut into small pieces. Keep the chicken broth to use later.
Rinse the rice and drain. Take rice and 2 Tbsp of butter to a pot. Saute over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes. Stir in 3 cups of chicken broth that you kept before. Add salt and cook over low-medium heat until rice becomes lightly undercooked.
Boil almonds for 2-3 minutes and peel the skins off. Grease the pot, Pyrex or cake pan with butter (whichever you’ll use to bake the drape pilaf). Leave it in the fridge for about 5-8 minutes, and then stick some of the almonds inside the container you’re using.
Divide the dough into one small and one big piece. Flatten the big one with a roller as big as to cover the container. Lay it out inside the container. Meanwhile, sauté pine nuts and remaining almonds with ½-1 Tbsp of butter, until they get light brown. Stir them and chicken into the cooked rice. Add black pepper and mix them all. Transfer them over the container covered with the dough. Flatten the small piece of dough as well and cover the top of the pilaf with this (like a lid). Grease the top with butter and bake in the preheated 400 F (200 C) oven till it gets lightly brown.
Let it rest for 5-10 minutes and turn the container upside down.
Serve warm/hot.

Pasta Carbonara with Sujuk (Sucuklu Makarna Karbonara)

1 lb any kind pasta
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
½-1 cup sujuk, cubed or sliced into small strips
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 large eggs
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese + more for serving
½ tsp ground black pepper
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking to ensure that the spaghetti will be hot and ready when the sauce is finished. It is very important that the pasta is hot when adding the egg mixture, so that the heat of the pasta cooks the raw eggs in the sauce.
Cook the pasta in salty boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender yet firm. Drain the pasta and reserve 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water to use in the sauce if you wish.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add the sujuk and saute for about 3 minutes, until is crisp and the fat is rendered. Stir in the garlic and saute for less than 1 minute to soften.
Mix the hot pasta and the sujuk over the heat to keep hot. Beat the eggs and Parmesan together in a mixing bowl, stirring well to prevent lumps. Pour the egg/cheese mixture into the pasta, whisking quickly until the eggs thicken, but do not scramble (this is done off the heat to ensure this does not happen.) Thin out the sauce with a bit of the reserved pasta water, until it reaches desired consistency. Season the carbonara with ground black pepper and taste for salt. Take into warm serving plates and garnish with fresh parsley. Sprinkle with more cheese if desired.
