How is Tarhana Produced?

The main ingredients are wheat and full-fat yogurt. Cracked wheat which is suitable for Tarhana is sorted, grounded and washed in the mill.

The prepared cracked wheat is cooked and mixed continuously until it melts in boiled water. The boiled mixture is left to cool down (3-6 hours). Afterwards, full fat Yoghurt is added. Yoghurt and wheat are kneaded until a homogeneous mixture. Then it is left for fermentation (12-18 hours).

The fermented mixture is laid on a special surface and dried in the sun. The product is completely purifed from moisture by drying (48-72 hours). Dryed tarhana is removed from the surface and it is packed. Ready for consumption.
