|English term or phrase: doughnut|
Please, what do you call a doughnut? An Iranian friend suggested ‘پیرشکی’ (pirashki) but I find nothing to confirm this.
This may help:
By the way, here in Turkey, ‘pişi’ is the word for the simplest kind of doughnut (i.e. nothing added at all, just fried dough); when served up smothered in syrup it is known as ‘lokma’ (lit. ‘mouthful, morsel’ as in Persian لقمه) and is served at funerals. I wonder if this resonates with Iranian culture at all.
Best wishes, and many thanks,
