    My husband and I had Turkish coffee in a small Persian cafe.
    Along with the coffee we were served a small square of a sweet made from cucumber seeds. I am trying to find out what this treat is called and where to find it. Perhaps I can make it myself?

    That sounds interesting: cucumber seeds?? I've never heard these used before as an ingredient! icon_biggrin.gif Elizalex, I hope someone from the Middle East reads this, as I am in South Africa, so it's as exotic to me as it is to you!

    Why don't you post this request in the ASIAN and EASTERN EUROPEAN forums as well? You might get lucky there. icon_confused.gif

    How intriguing. Are you sure it was cucumber seeds and not something else? I assume you mean dried seeds, as opposed to the seeds found in a fresh cucumber??

    Yes, dried cucumber seeds. We specifically asked our host. I had a similar sweet from the Middle East that was made of sesame seeds. The texture is very different. The one we had most recently melts in your mouth like it is made of air. It was awesome.
