Tinürü refers to the name of the old ovens where traditional breads were mostly baked at home in the earlier times. Tinürü is now called "Tandir". Based on Turkey's historical records, assorted flavored breads were created with the addition of butter, spices and fragrant herbs during the feast days of the olden days. Flavorings used were usually spices and herbs, such as salt, cumin, nigella seed, fennel, saffron, sesame, mustard and watermelon seeds. Delicious flavored breads, sesame, watermelon, sunflower and poppy seeds are still being used nowadays in Germany, Bread with watermelon seeds is my favorite, especially when it is freshly baked, even the watermelon seeds are crispy. I can not resist these breads, one of my favorite things in Germany.
