Tulumba (fried pastry with syrup) meaning pump, is a dessert from the Ottoman cuisine consisting of fried batter soaked in syrup. The ingredients are water, butter, salt, flour, eggs, sunflower oil, sugar and lemon juice. It is made from unleavened dough lumps given a small ovoid shape with ridges along it using an 'icing' bag with a special nozzle. It is first deep-fried to golden color and then sugar-sweet syrup is poured over it, while still hot. It is eaten cold. This dessert is consumed throughout the Balkans and Turkey.
