Iskender kebab is one of the famous kebab dishes of Turkey. It started in 1867 in Bursa region. In fact, although its basic ingredient is doner kebab, what makes the iskender is the butter on it, tomato sauce, yogurt next to it, and pieces of pita bread underneath.
Iskender kebab meat is prepared to be cooked vertically and cooked on fire. As it cooks, the outer layer is sliced like leaves. These slices are laid on top of the buttered pita pieces. It is served with yoghurt on the side, sprinkled with butter and tomato sauce, if desired.
