Turli tava (vegetable and meat stew) has its name origin in Turkish words turli (türlü in modern Turkish) meaning "mixed" and tava, a pottery dish. It is a common main course dish for Macedonia and the rest of the southern Balkans. Turli tava is made out of potatoes, rice, okra, eggplant, carrots, peppers, pork, beef or lamb. All these ingredients are mixed and baked in an oven in a traditional pottery dish (tava).
