    Syrinx's Note:

    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.

      I have never had simit before, so I have never experienced the consistency as it is meant to be, but I agree with the previous reviewer's assessment of this recipe as producing something more akin to a shortbread. The rings certainly turned out and worked fine for our purposes, but after a bit of googling, it seems this recipe is not very true to the traditional way of making simit. To be fair, it may be a regional variation, but I think I'll be trying a different recipe next time. Made with Turkish red lentil soup.

      Turned out like shortcrust pastry not the lovely bread rings we know though I did wonder with the ingredients. I now have 'pastry rings' and a disappointed Turkish husband.
