  • About

Lokma, like pişi and katmer, is associated with religious feast days. Lokma is said to signify the seal of the Prophet Mohammed.

Very small lokmas, made with just a teaspoon of batter, are known as saray lokması or palace lokma, because they are made in the manner used in the imperial palace in Ottoman times. In Izmir, which has shops that specialize in lokmas, they are shaped into rings and deep-fried.

Lokmas can be eaten either hot or cold.
