Ašure

Ašure (mutfakdili.blogspot.com) Danes je dan Ašure. Deseti dan prvega meseca po islamskem koledarju (10. Muharrem). Ašure pomeni deset.

Muslimani, še posebej šiiti, pa tega dne nimajo samo v lepem spominu, ampak tudi v slabem.Continue reading “Ašure”

Turkish delights

Lokum (granatno jabolko, pistacija, vrtnica)(Pomegranate, pistachio, rose) Večina sladic v Turčiji je zelooo sladkih.

Testo je zelo tanko, naContinue reading “Nekaj kot pica / Something like pizza”
