Lokma is a traditional Turkish dessert made with flour, sugar, yeast and salt bathed with syrup or honey. Lokma was first cooked by the sultan's cooks at Ottoman Empire palaces and for centuries it was unknown how it was made. After the 20th century it became a tradition for Turks to cook and serve lokmas to neighbours and passengers.
- Tuzlu lokma (also pişi, bişi, halka) may be thought of as cookies or biscuits, and since they are fried, they are sometimes compared to doughnuts.
- Tatlı lokma are a kind of fried-dough pastry made of deep fried dough soaked in sugar syrup or honey and cinnamon, and sometimes sprinkled with sesame.
