We Waited For You Eleven Months; Gullac – Discover Turkish Desserts
Since it is a light dessert, Gullac does not disturb the stomach after breaking the fast and is easily digested, making it an indispensable part of the month of Ramadan. Traditionally, Gullac, which is often included in iftar tables, is easily prepared with milk and granulated sugar. Optionally, it is decorated with walnuts, hazelnuts and fruit slices.
Materials of Gullac;
- 10 leaves of gullac
- 1.5 liters of milk
- 2 cups sugar
- ground walnuts
- 2 tablespoons rose water (optional)
Preparation of Gullac;
- First of all, heat the milk and sugar in a saucepan, let the sugar melt completely.
- Then let the milk cool at room temperature.
- If the milk boils, your dessert will be dough, so it should be in a way that will not burn your hands.
- We put the Gullac leaf in a deep tray with the shiny part on top.
- Pour a ladle or two of milk on it so that it gets wet all over.
- Let’s repeat the same process for five gullaç leaves, and after wetting the 5th floor, let’s sprinkle walnuts on this floor and spread the other gullaç leaves by wetting them in the same way.
- Take a glass of the remaining sugar milk.
- Add 2 tablespoons of rose water and drizzle over the dessert.
You can store Gullac in the refrigerator. We recommend that you rest it for 2-3 hours before serving. You can also decorate Gullac as you wish. Although it is usually decorated with nuts, we can say that it completely depends on your taste. Bon Appetit!
