Description Edit


Tulumba (fried pastry with syrup) is a type of dessert made from lumps of unleavened dough (about 5cm long). which are given a small ovoid shape with ridges along it using a special nozzle of an 'icing' bag. The lumps are first deep-fried until golden and then drenched in sugar syrup while still hot. Tulumba is usually eaten cold. This dessert is consumed throughout the Balkans and originates from Anatolia.
