    eating "LOKMA"

    It originates from the courts of Sultans. Same dessert is called "Izmir Lokmasi' in Izmir. It is very much favored in this part of the country and Izmir people proud of this dessert. "Lokma" means "bite". In Cunda, native people changed this dessert little bit. They use some mastica when they prepare it. so it gets different taste of mastica. It's yummy as well as Izmir style. Dont forget to try it.

    Prepare syrup and set aside. Dissolve yeast and sugar in a bowl with warm water. Add 1/4 cup of flour. Mix until smooth. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Add rest of flour, egg and salt blending well. Beat for 7-8 minutes forming a thick sticky batter. Cover and let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes or until doubled. Heat oil in a frying kettle or deep fat fryer. Dip teaspoon into oil. Using oiled teaspoon drop 1 teaspoonful of thick batter into beated oil. Drop as many at a time as they can be turned easily while frying. Stir and turn lokmas constantly as they rise to surface. Brown until golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove as many at a time as possible; drain. Drop into cold syrup immediately. Let stand until lokmas absorb syrup. Remove from syrup and serve.
