Stuffed aubergine (karniyarik) is one of the traditional Turkish food recipe for meat and vegetable lovers. You can find many stuffed aubergine (karniyarik) recipe on the internet but the one I am sharing with you, is the easiest and most simple you can find. I will give you the recipe exactly how I cook stuffed aubergine. I will give you recipe for 4-6 people but you can reduce or increase the ingredients for less or more people.


6 Medium aubergine

500 gram/1/2 kilo Ground Mince beef

1 Medium Onion

2 Large Tomatoes

1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste (two if you don’t have pepper paste)

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Red pepper flake or black pepper


1 teaspoon cut garlic

Olive Oil

How to cook

First fry your aubergine in fry pan (till inside of aubergine get smooth)

Once is cooked, put the aubergine to the side (aubergine should get cold than you can fill inside)

Chopped the tomatoes and onion than put to fry pan to cook with olive oil, add little bit salt, one teaspoon garlic, rep pepper flake than start to cook

Once your mince beef is cooked, cut your aborigines a slit from end to end. Make sure cut won’t be too deep otherwise you cannot fill the aborigine

Fill your aubergine with mince beef

When your aubergine is filled, place the filled aubergine in to the fry pan

Mix the tomato paste with a glass of water, also add black or red pepper flake and salt

Add this water to the fry pan and cook with your aubergine

Once your aubergine and sauce is cooked, enjoy your stuffed aubergine
P.S for vegetarian people, aubergine can be fried in same way and instead of mince beef you can fill with feta cheese and you can cook in oven. You should add some olive oil and heat rove oven tray to make sure aubergine will not burn and cheese will mel

You need just 7 days for onion miracle

                                          You need just 7 days for  onion miracle

I know sound is similar with many diet program or beauty regime but this is working. It is not pleasant but take a photo of your face in the beginning and after 7 days as well. I am talking about onion water you will drink for 7 days in the morning before eating anything else and you will see the difference. You need to follow bellow exact simple step and finish in 7 days. Onion is a very strong anti-oxidant and it is not advisable to carry on more than 7 days. We can also call this home detox and instead of going expensive detox programme you will be able to do this at home and with little bit effort. It is not suitable for pregnant ladies and also who has allergies for onion.
Onion water recipe and guide:
Have one middle size onion (yellow one)
Break the onion with your hand. If your hand is not strong like mine put the onion in clean bag and smash with something strong (do not use knife because vitamin should stay fresh)
Put the onion in glass jar, pour the one glass of very hot water
Close the jar and leave for all night
In the morning pour this water in glass and drink before eating anything else

Make sure you will have some bread or other pastry you like to eat after drinking onion water to keep your stomach okay. You can hold your noise if you don’t like the onion smell and you do not need to worry if you think your breath will have onion smell because you won't feel  any smell rest of the day.

Yogurt mask

Yogurt is super loaded with vitamins and minerals that nourish and revitalize withered skin. If you have acne prone skin, use yogurt face masks to banish those pesky pimples. Yogurt is a great ingredient for getting rid acne naturally, as it contains anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, as well as alpha hydroxyl acids that kill acne causing bacteria. To have maximum benefit, use yogurt as plain and apply all your face (avoid eye area).
