Sahlep (Powdered Root Of Orchis Mascula)
- 4 cups milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 Tsp. sahlep powder
Mix sugar and sahlep powder in a pan. Add the cold milk stirring constantly. Heat the mixture until it boils again stirring constantly. Let it boil for 2-3 minutes and remove from heat. Serve it warm and garnished with cinnamon.
The thicker the sahlep is, the better. Sometimes addition of a little bit of starch might help to get the desired consistency. It is also a remedy for sore throats and colds.
