If you are, you breath. If you breath, you talk. If you talk, you ask. If you ask, you think. If you think, you search. If you search, you experience. If you experience, you learn. If you learn, you grow. If you grow, you wish. If you wish, you find. And if you find… you doubt. If you doubt, you question. If you question, you understand. If you understand, you know. And if you know, you want to know more. And if you want to know more, you are… alive.

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Yogurt Sauce:
1 cup yogurt, plain, room temperature
1-2 garlic cloves, smashed with salt

1 tbsp. butter
Red pepper
Cayenne pepper

4 pides, cut in bite size

Mix all the kofte ingredients together with your hands. Take a fist-sized ball and skewer it, starting from the tip of the skewer. Squeeze and flatten it on the skewer going back slowly, so that it is thin and flat to acquire the shape shown in the picture.

Preheat your barbecue or oven (grill). Place the skewers on the rack. Make sure to turn the skewers so that all sides of the meat cook equally.

Cook the tomato sauce for a few minutes, put aside. Whisk the yogurt sauce ingredients, put aside.

Place pide pieces on service plates and arrange the kebabs on them. Pour tomato and yogurt sauce all over. Melt the butter in a small pan and add in the pepper. When the butter starts bubbling, pour over the Yogurtlu Kebab.

 Top Drink
Rakomelo is a warm mixed alcoholic drink. It is made by combining raki or tsipouro with honey and several spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, or other regional herbs. It is produced in Crete and other islands of the Aegean Sea and on the Greek mainland, chiefly consumed during the winter as a warm drink. A similar drink is baked raki, which is a regional drink of the island of Amorgos that is made from raki, sugar and spices and is served at room temperature. Baked raki contains more spices than rakomelo which usually only contains cinnamon. Rakomelo can be found as a bottled mixed drink in liquor stores, ready to be warmed and served. Baked raki is also available mixed and bottled, ready for consumption (served at room temperature). A general recipe for rakomelo is 1-2 teaspoons of honey for every 4 shots of raki, along with one clove and about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, modified to suit different tastes. The ingredients are best warmed in a special pot called 'briki' (cezve) or on a gass stove, as with Greek coffee.
