So, what is yağ?

Yağ is a common ingredient used in Turkish cuisine and refers to oil or fat. It can be derived from a variety of sources such as animal fats, seeds, and nuts. The most common types of yağ used in Turkish cooking include olive oil, sunflower oil, and butter. These ingredients are essential in adding flavor and texture to dishes such as kebabs, stews, and salads. Yağ is also commonly used in baking and frying, providing a crispy texture and rich flavor. In addition to its culinary uses, yağ has also been used for medicinal purposes in traditional Turkish medicine.
