Make 'Kumpir' out of your baked potato - 14 delicious recipes
Kumpir vs. Baked Potato: What's the Difference?
The potato specialty originally comes from the Balkans, where they were traditionally baked in hot coals and served with yogurt and butter. Then the Kumpir in Turkey received a real "taste tuning" and were perfected into real gourmet tubers.
At 400 to 450 grams, traditional kumpir are real colossi - but colossi full of flavor. Traditionally, the raw potatoes are pierced all around with a fork, wrapped in aluminum foil and baked in a special three-tier oven. They are cooked hot on the lower level, while on the two upper levels they can be drawn in and kept warm. A specialty of the preparation of kumpir is the handling of the inside of the potato: The potato is cut lengthways, the inside is scraped out a little with a fork, loosened and mixed with butter and usually with grated cheese. This creamy mashed potato is the basis of good Kumpir recipes.
The filling: It goes well with the Turkish baked potato
At least as important and trademark of the Turkish potato: the filling! Because it is only when they are filled that plain baked potatoes become real bulbs of character and vile baked potatoes become true kumpir.
You can fill whatever you want: Couscous, vegetables, feta, red cabbage, roasted meat, pickled olives or sun-dried tomatoes. The huge aroma bombs are particularly creamy and delicious with different Sauces on top. Sometimes mild with Quark, sometimes spicy with Salsa and Sweet chilli sauce or better yet, all at once. Here, too, there is absolute freedom of fools. True to the motto: the main thing is delicious!
The result is a wide variety of creations and filled splendid specimens that are just waiting to be plastered. It is a matter of gradually working your way from the crumbly edge of the hot steaming potato to the creamy, aromatic interior.
Prepare kumpir in your home oven
Is your mouth watery yet? If so, I have good news for you: You can easily prepare the delicious potatoes in your home oven. An original Kumpir oven is great, but really not necessary. With a normal oven, 200 ° C convection, one hour time, some aluminum foil, delicious ingredients and of course a couple of large potatoes, you are perfectly equipped for the preparation.
Of course, I couldn't resist myself and tried out some Kumpir recipes right away. For a little variety, there are also a few creations with sweet potatoes. They all passed the Springlane taste test by me and my dear colleagues with flying colors!
