Thursday, June 17, 2010

Lokma means "morsel", it is a dessert that as we turkish love to cook, eat and share with people. Today is "regaip day" which is holy day for muslims, in this day prophet Mohammed was conceived at that night.. so this kinda holy days we especially cook this Lokma dessert and share with our relatives, neighboors , friends.. it is also so generous dessert, with small of dough you can have a lot of dessert to share with other people..


2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry yeast (1 teaspoon of yeast powder to melt the sugar and half a cup of warm water)
1 cup water
1 egg

For frying
1 cup oil

For syrup
4 cups water
5 cups
granulated sugar
2 teaspoon lemon juice

First of all, add sugar into warm water and yeast and swollen up to 10 minutes, we expect consistency.

Put your all ingredients into a deep bowl, add also ready yeast and mix it, you will have very soft,juicy dough. Leave the dough to rest 30 minutes, well let ferment.

On the other hand, to prepare the syrup, water and sugar together, put them into a saucepan and let sit over the fire. Medium heat, the sugar dissolves completely and let syrup solids until the boiler. Add the lemon juice and syrup, it became solid.

We have received a handful of soft dough, let common in our hands, our hands on the cob to the size of a piece.
With the help of a teaspoon of dough and then get it and into the hot oil, let the pan from a close distance. Let's bite prepared in this way. Let's bite the frying pan, shaking constantly.

As possible in the form of round balls drop into the skillet and fry. If you are like me and not talented , it will be really hard to form it like a ball , because the dough is the juice format..i didnt care it too much the taste and also form wasnt so bad so relax:))

However, another very important issue, tablespoon of dough at a time before diving into the hot oil and then dipped in batter taken. Line so that the oil of your spoon, spoon the dough to come to your regularly will help. So before the spoon, dip into hot oil, then remove the soft dough into the dip, take part in a large nut size, and let the hot frying pan. Spoon dipped into hot skillet, heat oil again, and again plunge into the soft dough. So that the dough until you run the same process continues.

Thoroughly flushed them with our bite, and let's just wait, let out into the warm syrup. When you want to offer the service.

bon appetit...
