Bāmiyeh (Azerbaijani: Ballıbadı, Persian: باميه‎) or zulbiā and bāmieh (Persian: زولبیا باميه‎) is a traditional Iranian treat,[1] similar to a doughnut.[2] It is made from a yogurt and starch-based dough, which is fried before being dipped in syrup.[3] It is a special sweet often enjoyed at Iftar in Ramadan.[4] It is also commonly served with its counterpart, the zulbiā (Zoolbia), which is prepared the same way but is a web-like arrangement of strips of dough.
