In this short period of time, I hope you find the opportunity of tasting my delicious Turkish delights.

This is the third article of Delicious Turkish Delights series. I see that you enjoyed reading the first and second article of the series. In this short time, I hope you catch the opportunity of tasting my delicious Turkish delights. After reading this article, you’ll know about the new delights I am going to continue to introduce you to Turkish cuisine. Without delay, I would like to begin my article by introducing you to Sutlac.

Sutlac

It is a good combination of rice and milk. It is a dessert enjoyed by many people from all over the world. However, it is mostly peculiar to Asian cuisine. The main ingredients of Sutlac are rice, milk or cream, spices (cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg), flavorings (pistachio, vanilla) and sweeteners like sugar, honey and fruits. It can be served either hot or cold. It was first prepared in Ottoman kitchen by the order of Ottoman Emperor.

Pismaniye

It was invented by Agop Efendi, who was an Armenian descent in 19th century. Therefore, it is peculiar to Ottoman Empire cuisine. It is known as “Turkish Cotton Candy”, which includes a combination of flour, sugar and pistachio. Pismaniye is a soft, light, and fluffy dessert. It is mostly served at festivals or after coming back from a long journey in Turkey.

Sekerpare

The main ingredients of Sekerpare are flour, eggs, butter, pistachio and sugar. Sekerpare is made as small pieces and the amount of sugar in Sekerpare is very high. So, when someone eats two or three pieces, it makes him feel full. It can be served either hot or cold. It reminds many people of Tulumba dessert.

Just to clarify: These are not examples of the delicacy known as “Turkish delight”. These are merely gastronomic delights from Turkish cuisine.

I can imagine doing something fun at Halloween time with the “Turkish Cotton Candy”. Kind of looks like wrappings of a mummy.
