To make this recipe work, you really must have the red pepper paste instead of the tomato paste. It is a spicy paste with a very unique flavor available at specialty food stores and ethnic food markets. Also, I think it's better when the garlic is crushed and use 1 onion. - 18 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good! After living in Turkey for two years, I have been searching for a good recipe to recreate the tava we ate there. I omitted the potatoes altogether. That was the way I ate it there, so after reading the reviews I figured I wouldn't even fuss with them. I also replaced the tomatoes with two cans of regular rotel. I topped the dish with some shredded mozzarella for the last 15 minutes - yum! Serve over or with rice... The end result was very similar to what I remember! Thanks for the recipe! - 01 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
