Delicious Turkish desserts can be divided in two main parts, apart from the fruit compotes: milk desserts and sweet pastries (with very special names), the latter being quite rich and therefore served with unsweetened clotted cream, especially that of water-buffalo milk, called “kaymak”. The sweet pastries go particularly well after a tasty dish of fried or grilled fish. Various sorts of kadayif” are made of ready made doughs: the “tel kadayif” are thin pieces of dried dough that look like threads; the “ekmek kadayif” is a special kind of loaf; the “yassi kadayif” are a kind of flat pancakes. Some of these desserts are served on special occasions, such as wheat pudding (a$ure) served on the tenth day of the Moslem month of Muharrem, or saffron-flavoured sweet rice (zerde) served in weddings.
