Welcome to the recipe for fry bread, another popular Turkish breakfast! The photo may not look very good visually, I am not very successful in terms of aesthetics and presentation :). But nevermind, the shape doesn’t matter when we eat, right? Ok, I understand, some of you disagree. But even the smell of fried bread is enough for me. Of course, you can eat it plainly, but the things you eat beside it make you love it.
It is known and loved in every region without exception and generally called by the name of the Pişi. Generally consumed as a dessert in the world, but we eat it salty. It does not require a lot of ingredients for its preparation, you just need to wait a while for it to ferment. For the best puff-puff, the dough should be quite soft and deep-fried. You can eat fried dough with things such as olives, cheese, jam, and honey. And of course, it is good with a cup of tea!
