Oh, very sweet once tried something similar, is super.

And the most important ingredient is missing. This is rose water!

Notify Me, rose water is the final of the recipe :)

Is not Armenian ashure?

If you read the recipe all the way you will see that there are rose water.A Ashura is typical Turkish dessert in Plovdiv only place where you can eat such ashure is Turkish shop of Dzhumayata, and the Net venture as *Turkish* ashure.

Ashura (also dish * Noah *), which is a Turkish culinary sites in Turkish households for Ashura, is always with chickpeas and beans and put some dried beans and broad beans. How is available in BG, whether it is adapted to the taste I do not know, but ashure without beans is like a pie without sheet.

Armenian ashure has another name and is a little different from this recipe. It lacks rice, chickpeas and beans.
