Turkish Night: Asurah/ Noah's Pudding



Turkish Asure/Asurah/Noah's Pudding
It is very common to cook asure in Turkiye in the first month of lunar calendar.
The story of this desert is as follows: When Prophet Noah’s ark came to rest on Mount Ararat ,they didnot enough food so they put everything they had together and coked asure!
It is believed that cooking asure will bring blessings to the household during that year.
We share it with neighbors and friends as much as possible and spread the joy!

Of course you can prepare and enjoy it anytime you want so I picked "asure"as my recipe for "Turkish Night"!
For more exciting,cool, delicious, mouth watering, yummy etc. Turkish recipes, do not forget to visit "I love Turkish Food" blog! Thanks Minik Kus and Yaman Ayse for your effort! We love Turkish Food and we love you you, too :)

Here is a basic recipe:
