It was a super recipe to switch to granular foods, believe me, the taste was also super. If we don't have tarhana, why would we keep grainy things or things that our babies don't eat, right ladies? Don't ever tell me that it's not right to hide things inside something. There is nothing a mother who doesn't eat her baby can't do.
Note : If olive oil is used instead of butter in this recipe, milk becomes an allergic recipe.
Onion and garlic are cut into small cubes and sautéed in a small saucepan with water.
Then, green lentils are added and cooked with water 2-3 inches above the ingredients.
This process can take up to half an hour. Green lentils cook a little late.
The lentils are close to cooking, and we will prepare the tarhana in another small pot. For this, butter or olive oil is put in the pan. Red tarhanas are thrown into the pot when the oils melt/heat. After turning the tarhana in oil a couple of times, 3 tea glasses of water is added and cooked.
When the tarhana starts to boil, the cooked mixture with green lentils, onions and garlic is poured into the pot with tarhana by straining the water with a spoon. Tarhana and lentils are cooked in 5 minutes.
When the food is cooked, it is fed to babies with the addition of mint, germ and bread crumbs. Bon appetit to the lambs.
