Salep (Orchis Latfolia)

A starchy powder made from tubers which grow in the Middle East. The tubers are washed, then dried and ground. This is then used as a drink, and is particularly popular in Turkey, where the powder is also made into ice cream.

There is considered opinion that believes cornflour is often used as a substitute, or at least to dilute the salep powder.
