Merhaba From Türkiye 👋

First of all, I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you can come back, again and again, to check up any beyond Indonesian or Turkish food or something sweets that you might love. Your comments and emails brighten my days and make this simple blog thing worthwhile 😍💛

And Happy Eid-el Fitr to all my Muslim friends around the globe. May Allah bless you with happiness and grace your home with warmth and peace.



Pineapple tarts cookies are one of Indonesian traditional (and some neighboring countries) cookies that commonly made and serve during religious holidays such as Eid-el Fitr or Christmas along with many other traditional cookies like; kaastengelsputri saljupastel miniButter cokies or simple chocolate cookies and more.
In Indonesia it is called nastar which is the contraction of nanas tart (Ananas or pineapple tart).

Most of nastar in Indonesia has a round shape with a diameter of about 2 centimeters. The pineapple jam is filled inside instead of spread on top. The cookie is often decorated with small pieces of cloves or raisins on top of it.


We never bored of it because we can vary it as many as we can. Just check my COOKİES CATEGORY to see my "nastar" variations. You can make many variations base on shape and filling. Adding some cheese into the dough definitely enriches the taste of this classic Indonesian cookies. 💙

The Eid el Fitr will come soon... After fasting one full month, Muslims around the world will celebrate the Eid-el Fitr holiday. 
Different from Turkey, Indonesian bake many kinds of cookies instead of Baklava. Cookie jars arrange on the table waiting for family, friends, relatives, and neighbors to come. 

But this year would be sadly different 😢
There won't be a family gathering due to the worldwide pandemic COVID-19. Gathering or meeting restrictions made to cut the spread of the virus.

Generally, the case in Turkey per 21 May showed positive grafik. The case getting low and lower daily. Per May, Turkey confirmed a total of 149,435 coronavirus cases as of Sunday. 109,962 of them have fully recovered while the death toll stands at 4,140.

Turkey has been one of the countries detecting COVID-19 cases the most rapidly and it took an important step by starting treatment at an early stage, the nation’s health minister told Monday the World Health Assembly (WHA).

"It is among the best-performing countries in terms of mortality rate and burden on the health care system. Thanks to the measures taken, Turkey was able to delay the arrival of the virus for three months and used this time to prepare its hospitals and health care system for the outbreak," Fahrettin Koca said.

He noted that the occupancy rate in Turkey's hospitals is still below 40% and below 60% in intensive care units.

"Turkey is one of the few countries providing all services to its citizens free of charge under universal health coverage. We are always ready to exchange knowledge and experiences," said the minister.--

So, I am trying to cheer up the days and upcoming Bayram holiday by keep bringing the holiday atmosphere to our house. Cook and bake as I was cooking for the Eid-el Fitr holiday for my family at home. Clean up and decorate our house as if many guests will come 😃
But since nobody will come I bake a small batch only. Just enough for us for this holiday.

Turkish (flat bread) Ramadan Pide with #poolish method / Ramazan Pidesi (poolish ön mayası) | Çitra's Home Diary

Ramadan pide, one of  Ramadan staple here in Turkey. It's a traditional soft leavened Turkish bread. Round or oval and rather flat in form, and having a weave-like patterned crust, Ramazan pidesi is made of wheat flour with yeast and topped with egg glaze and sesame and or nigella sativa seeds.
It is traditionally served for the iftar and sahur meals during the holy month of Ramadan.


With Ramadan starting, everyone is waiting for the moment they get a hot Ramadan pide for iftar (fast-breaking meal) and put butter on it or dip into a hot soup (çorba). Enjoying the enchanting smell before eating the whole piece in a second. 

And seeing a long queue in front of fırın/ public bakery before iftar time to get this delicious flatbread fresh from the oven is a common view. But since the COVID-19 pandemic, people hesitate to go out and no crowd being allowed.
Mostly public bakery already produces this pide bread before 6 PM and already wrapped up waiting for people to buy or they will distribute to the neighborhood. 


Baking bread at home also became more popular these days. During the pandemic, people tend to cook or make anything at home including baking bread.
But for me, baking bread it's not about a trend. I love baking my own bread cause my husband loves to eat homemade bread.

You may remember my previous post of baking No-Knead version of Ramazan pidesi a couple years ago, it becomes my popular post. Check how to make that no-knead version for quick and fail-proof Turkish Ramadan pide here.
For another version, you can check my other recipe here.

Damla sakızlı Süt Helvası / Turkish dessert; Milk Bake pudding with mastic gum | Çitra's Home Diary

We are enjoying the month Ramadan in Muslim world right now. So, we are cooking and baking Ramadan recipes at home. For Turkish, dinner table (iftar safrası) in Ramadan should always be special. More special than the daily table.

We start the iftar dinner with hurma (date) as our sunnah. Then soup ( turkçe; çorba) as our appetizer. Then we will have an entreé complete with salad as a side dish. Then dessert (tatlı) served most probably a few minutes after iftar (break the fast) together with tea time sometimes.



Since we had our iftar (break the fasting) full flavors, we serve them in a small portion or as personal preference. And we want our dessert is light.
Just like what I am going to share today. It's light, creamy yet delish Turkish milk pudding calls süt helvası. Süt in Turkish means milk. Helvası from the word "helva" means halvah or sweet/ dessert. This dessert is famous from Bursa, the city I!m living in now.
This dessert is one of repeatable menu in my house, I made this many times since it's my husband's fave. You can check my previous Süt Helvası here.

Indonesia Classic beverage; #setupnanas / Setup Nanas segar dan Mudah | Çitra's Home Diary

Still in Ramazan spirit, wish you my Muslim friends Ramadan Mubarek 🙏
During Ramadan, Muslim households will fast till dusk falls and break the fast with an iftar meal.
In Indonesia mostly we make or buy snacks to enjoy during iftar, we call it Ta'jil (read; taqjeel)Ta'jil itself comes from Arabic language means to fast-breaking, so it has nothing to do with the food. But in Indonesia, the term ta'jil is becoming commonly used as an expression of usually sweet iftar appetizers. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w gave the example of eating dates as the beginning of iftar.

We are happy can meet Ramadan again this year, but a little sad since this Ramadan we are in an unfortunate situation that makes us stay at home to isolate ourselves from the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Generally, we would have wonderful iftar together with families and friends. We invite each other to have iftar dinner where beautiful and happy moments being shared.
Iftar, also known as fatoor, is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. They break their fast at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer.
