Poğaça (read: po a tja, with "a" vague). In Turkey it's savory pastry with various filling, start from cheese, meat, potatoes, olive and more. Mostly eaten for breakfast or brunch with hot Turkish tea.
But I often find this food during afternoon toplantı(*) together with bulgur salad, couscous salad, potato salad, pasta salad and more.
(*) Casual gathering which sometimes Turkish women do in afternoon after 1 pm. They talk and share news/ story among them or family, drink tea, with light lunch such pastry( börek poğaça çörek, etc) with salad ( like kısır, potato salad) and more. and close the gathering with turkish coffee.
In Turkey there are few type of Poğaça... some use yeast (they call mayalı Poğaça) and some use baking powder.
And my today post is Poğaça with baking powder, so the texture is more to shortbread. Different with Poğaça with yeast which has texture to bread, but I like them both.... They just perfect for quick and light breakfast/ brunch.
