What Is? Lokma

Lokma is a Turkish dessert made from deep fried dough soaked in sugar syrup.

It is thought that this delicious crunchy sweet snack originated in Izmir, on the Agean coast of Turkey. Not unlike a doughnut, dough is deep fried in oil, then soaked in sugar syrup. The result is a crispy bite to make your teeth ache.  On the the streets of Istanbul, you often see pre-made servings for sale over the counter of a sweet shop for around 1 lira. No need to stop and chat, just throw your lira on the counter and grab your small plastic dish to eat on the run.
