Trahana and Kavurma Sauté


This is quite a name for a dish for those of you who don’t know what either of these ingredients are! They are both Mediterranean traditional delicacies that are really worth trying. Kavurma is roasted meat with spices and Trahana is a mixture of grains and yogurt or fermented milk. Tomato trahana is the same but made with tomatoes also.

  • Heat up the chicken stock.
  • Place a pot over high heat.
  • Add the onion and sauté.
  • Add the garlic and thyme and sauté.
  • Add the trahana. Stir and sauté until golden.
  • When the trahana has soaked up all of the onion’s moisture, add the wine.
  • Let it evaporate and start to add the chicken stock in batches and continue boiling for about 15 minutes, until the trahana softens.
  • In the meantime, place a nonstick pan over high heat.
  • Add the kavurma and sauté until golden.
  • When the tarhana is ready, remove from heat and add the kavurma and butter. Stir until the butter melts.
  • Add the lime zest, lime juice, spring onion and gruyere.
  • Stir and season to taste.
