Noah’s Pudding ( Asure Recipe )


Hello dear friends ! today as a Turkish foods family ,  we will share a delicious dessert recipe for you . Ashura, which comes from Ottoman cuisine, perhaps from a previous period, is also one of the indispensable parts of Turkish cuisine. The reason why this delicious dessert is based on the past is that it was first made by Noah. According to a rumor, after the flood of Noah ended and Noah’s ark came aground, they combined all of the last food left on the ark and cooked a meal. This dish is ashura. Therefore, it contains many kinds of food. It is known that Aşure is both healing and beneficial for the body. This dessert has a very important place in the Islamic world. According to the Hijri calendar, this dessert is made every year in the month of Muharram and everyone gives it to others. This dessert, which is shared with patients and children at first because it is said to be healing, is later shared with many people, family relatives and neighbors. Therefore, the 10th day of the month of Muharram is called the day of Ashura. Muslims fast on this day and one day before and one day after the day of Ashura.
