1/2 Photos of Simit (Turkish Bread Rings)
Simit is a ring-shaped unleavened bread, which is a popular street food in Turkey. The recipe comes from "The Country Kitchen" by Jocasta Innes, but I use butter instead of the recommended margarine, and sometimes substitute poppy seeds for the recommended sesame seeds.
