A 'pudding' popular in Turkey and neighbouring countries, consisting of all the food bits and pieces remaining after a meal. This might include beans, chick peas, dried fruit, nuts and rice.

The name comes from the Arabic 'ashura' - which is the tenth day of the holy month of the Muslim calendar.

Traditionally, many religious events happened on this day - Adam met Eve, Abraham was delivered from the fire and Jacob was reunited with Joseph.

It is sometimes known as Noah's pudding, as he is said to have made it for his family on the ark.
