So thatís how they do it Ö. These men drip, ten or so streams at a time, a continuous stream of highly-fluid dough on a hot plate, where it immediately is baked. It is known as tel kadayif. I thought it was a noodle, but it isn't: it is used to make deserts. Usually a small ball is made with it, inside you place walnuts. Then you bake it in an oven for 15-20 minutes. While it is still hot, you pour over a thick syrup. It is served then. As you may imagine the individual strands gets crispy in the oven first but then the syrup softens outsides a little, but it will melt in your mouth. This method is probably 300-400 years old. I owe this information to Alp Kocaman who took the trouble to write to me.

Almost immediately the product can be taken off, and a new production is started. In future this everyday action will be too expensive, and it will be a thing of the past. So catch it while you can.
