    Chef floWer's Note:

    This is a traditional Cypriot Turkish recipe, that past generations have been cooking. My mother is away so my friend has given me the recipe. *** Thanks Bet's *** I think my mother also uses diced celery ribs but I can't be sure. Note: There are few varieties of Taro, but this dish is normally used with colocasia root. Enjoy

      Made this last night, and had some on toast for lunch, its really good!! I had to search for the taro, finally found some, but only about the size of an egg, and $10 a kg!!!
      while it was interesting to taste a new veg, I think that orange sweet potato would work well too. Used Chicken tenderloins, and fresh tomatoes. Will make this often!
      made for Aussie swap May 2011
