Most of the time, “Simple is best.” I think this simple potato dish is the best potato dish ever. It’s simple, yummy, and there are no restrictions on what you can put in. Kumpir is the dish's name, but when you go to some cities in Anatolia, they say kumpir in place of potato.

If you visit Istanbul, you should head for the best place for kumpir: Ortaköy.

If you cant, don’t worry: Here is a recipe for you to make at home.


1 big potato
1 tb sp butter
2 tb spoon grated cheese
For Topping;
Sweet corn
sweet peas
olive oils

Pierce the potato with a fork in a few places and wrap it in aluminum foil. Bake it in a preheated oven for 1 hour at 250 degrees. After it is baked, cut it lengthwise in half. Add butter and grated cheese, mixing them well. After this, add your toppings – I used the ingredients above, but you can also add mushrooms, carrots or whatever you want.

Serve it as a light lunch.

Bon appétit!
