and Kataifi
In old times, altough boza was prepared at homes as well, it is traditionally sold by the street traders, so called "bozaci", in Turkey. On cold winter nights, the bozaci wanders in the streets of cities and sells boza. Hearing the voice of a bozaci from the street is another sign for everyone that it is winter time. It is a treat for all to buy some chilled boza from a street trader at night after dinner and enjoy this sour and sweet, highly nutritious yet delicious drink in the comfort of a warm house.
Kataifi (kadayıf in Turkish) is a very common dessert in the Middle East. Here I am using the word for the kataifi dough, which is also known as shredded dough. Long, very thin strands of dough, that is.

And this is new to me:

I actually don't like this drink. They do still sell it on the street in my neighborhood out of cart. He has a jug and pours it in a cup.

You reminded me of a joke a friend of mine played on some young friends.

In the evening the bozacı walks round the streets calling Boza! Boza!

My American friends 10 year old and 12 year old asked why does he walk the streets every night calling Boza! Boza!

One of our Turkish friends had a great sense of humour. "He is just the local mad guy" he replied. "He went mad when his wife ran off. Now he walks the streets calling her name to hope she will come back to him. Boza! Boza!"

What an imagination!
I dont like this drink either and I dont understand how come so many people like it and run to the doors or windows when they hear the bozacı shouting out "boza boza"! It has no taste at all! Even worse than mineral water!

Oh boza...I'd love to try it. There seems to be different kinds of boza made from different grains. I've heard Turkish and Bulgarian friends rapturously pine on about boza for years, but I've never been in Turkey the right time to get it.

There is an alcoholic one and a none alcoholic one, so it seems.
