Its true that one thing leads to another.A recent connection with a television drama series from turkey attracted me towards getting to know the country ,its traditions and rituals and as a result food of this beautiful country.
Although very distinct in their cuisines, it is a mixture of various elements from various cuisines like ottoman,Jewish ,Iranian and different parts of Europe.Desserts too have a very important place in the Turkish cuisines.
Perhaps more than any other cuisine.They have a popular saying in turkey,”Eat sweetly and speak sweetly”. They are prepared with their heart and soul and have a very important and distinctive place in Turkish cuisines.
I picked up the easiest and the most delicious the first.Its the Turkish style milk soaked cake . The original its made with all purpose flour ,but as my reputation goes,i made this again with 100% Wholewheat Flour.
That makes it even more coveted , due to its high health quotient.Its light for the tummy and healthy. Addiction Alert!!! Its so delicious that it’ll be difficult to stop yourself from indulging into multiple servings.
But the good news is ,you may even let the kids indulge ,as its a wholewheat cake soaked in milk and topped with white custard. You just need a handful of ingredients and 30 minutes at hand. I just fell in love with the dish as soon as i had a bite. This recipe has been adapted from Easy Turkish Recipes.
