The word mangal is Turkish, derived from the Arabic word manqal (منقل) meaning "portable"[1] and originally referred to portable indoors heaters mostly replaced by Western-type stoves.[2]


The menu always has a kind of meat. A typical mangal meal will consist of grilled vegetables, kebabs of various kinds and meatballs named köfte. Grilled chicken wings, chicken breasts and offal is also common. Salads and other cold foods accompany the meal. In Turkey, şalgam or ayran are common drinks during mangal parties as well as rakı.


Beyond just consuming food, mangal often means a family or friends gathering. Generally held in gardens or picnic areas, it stresses the hospitality towards the guests. Accordingly, it resembles braai of South Africa and its local equivalents worldwide.
