Pişi (Lokma)

by Bartuğ

Pişi (Lokma) are part of Turkish cuisine and especially at the breakfast table. Do you want to try them? Here is the recipe.

Pişi (Lokma) are Turkish, savory dumplings that are not filled, but can be filled as desired after deep-frying – also tastes great with sweet spreads or jams.

In our family there was seldom the Lokma and when it did, only on special Sundays for breakfast – I was happy to nibble some in between and get into trouble accordingly. I couldn’t resist the smell.
A Turkish tea should of course not be missing.
