Turkish Tulumba Recipe – Turkey Special

In the category of syrup desserts, my favorite dessert after sekerpare is a well-made tulumba dessert. What I mean by good is a rare thing like an Anatolian tiger, which is crunchy outside, soft inside, but not excessively syrupy, fried in good oil and without the smell of burnt oil. As I said, it’s rare.
