This is a quick and fast version of Turkish manti in which I use ready-made beef ravioli.
You are actually not suppose drain the water out of the ravioli! It is suppose to be like creamy soup! So I would say use one ladle of the water and as little or as much yogurt as you would like. Sorry it got left out! - 31 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have never eaten Turkish food before, but am always game to try something new. Maybe it is an acquired taste, but this was not to my liking. - 04 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
If you make the yogurt/garlic mixture a few hours ahead and leave it in the fridge it's tastier. I also mix the mint into the yogurt. My mother-in-law uses a bit of tomato sauce heated in olive oil instead of the butter/paprika. I've had it both ways and prefer the tomato sauce/olive oil more. Ravioli is a good substitute but real Manti makes a difference. Living in Turkey we can get all different kinds and they are delicious. If you have the opportunity to get the original, try it. - 23 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
