Tulumba Tatlisi

Tulumba is a popular & mostly eaten turkish dessert. This taste crunchy ouside & soft and moist inside. Especially during family gatherings, this dessert plays a predominant role in the menu. This would be a interesting dessert for the sweet lovers and not for the diet concisious people.

  1. 2 1/2 cups of flour
  2. 3 cups of water
  3. 1 tbsp fine semolina
  4. 1 tbsp rice flour
  5. 1 tbsp corn strach
  6. 5 eggs
  7. 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  8. 1 pinch of salt


  1. 2 1/2 cups sugar
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1/2 tsp lemmon juice
  4. oil for frying

Method :

For the sugar syrup :

  • Mix sugar and water together & bring it to the boil. Once the syrup is ready, switch off the heat and add lemon juice to it. Keep aside.

For the dough :

  • Combine the water, butter and salt in a heavy bottomed sauce pan and bring it to boil.
  • Meanwhile, incorporate all the dry ingredients together & add them to the boiling water. Stir them continously for 5 mins.
  • Switch off the heat & allow the mixture to cool.
  • Knead the dough by adding eggs one by one & fill them into a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch diameter tip.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan and pipe the dough in the hot oil and cut the edges using the scissors. Fry them till golden brown in either side.
  • Drain off the excess oil using the paper towel and soak them in the sugar syrup.
  • Remove them from the syrup and place over a serving dish.
