Sıkma is a special flatbread of the Turkish nomads in Anatolia (called yörük in Turkish), widely prepared in Adana and Mersin. Very thin pieces of dough are cooked over a saj, then wrapped and pressed with a filling, almost like a burrito. Visitors from other cities particularly liked these dishes, so they became a treat prepared for guests.

Ayşe prepares these in a nonstick skillet. They are a delight with tea, orange juice, or ayran (a yogurt drink).
