Asure - Noah's Puding

Aşure (pronounced ashoora) is important in Islam and became a part of Turkish culture. Many variations were developed by different parts of Turkey. Aşure is translated to English as "Noah's Puding" because a variation of Aşure was cooked in the ark by prophet Noah (may peace be upon him) and his followers.

Aşure was also cooked by Prophet Muhammad's (may peace be upon him) followers using whatever they were able to carry with them when they were exiled from Mecca.
