If you are used to siomai in Indonesia, in Turkey there is a similar dish, you know! Her name is Manti. This Turkish food is very similar in shape to dumplings, made from a thin layer of flour filled with meat and various special spices.
The difference lies in the size, because the layers of Manti flour are generally thin and small. In addition, another difference lies in the way it is presented. Turkish people usually serve Manti with a splash of tomato sauce, yogurt and onions, so the taste really kicks.
Have you ever seen a video of the attraction of an ice cream seller who pranks his customers by spinning ice cream using a long stick? That ice cream is Dondurma. This attraction is a form of entertainment and the way the seller serves the buyer can of course be an entertainment in itself, because it invites laughter from the visitors.
Dondurma itself is usually not served with cones like the videos that are widely circulated, but more often it is served with sweet Turkish specialties such as Baklava. Turks usually serve Dondurma as a side dish.
Dondurma is also different from most ice creams, because it uses goat’s milk as a base. In addition, the use of ointment (derived from orchids) makes Dondurma have a sweeter, chewier, and creamier taste. Interested in trying?
Love sweet dishes? Try Baklava pastry, a typical Turkish food. The shape is small squares and layers. The texture is soft, crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. So that one bite, the sweetness immediately overflows into your mouth.
