Turkish dessert (saray helvasi) in NYC

schmecktsgut | May 3, 2009 11:35 AM

A Turkish friend once brought me a dessert/sweet back from Turkey which I believe is called 'saray helvasi' (note: it is NOT 'Turkish delight'). It's cut in a parallelogram shape and is white in color, made with pistachio. It's dry, slightly sweet, and very light and flaky...nearly melts in your mouth. I've seen it online on Turkish food websites (usually comes pre-packaged, in a box), but I haven't been able to find it anywhere here in the city. Help??

Here is a link with a photo of it:
