Tulumba (Turkish: tulumba tatlısı, Greek: τουλούμπα, Cypriot Greek πόμπα (pomba); Albanian toloumba, Bulgarian, Macedonian and Serbian: тулумба) is a popular dessert found in the cuisines of the former Ottoman Empire. It is a fried batter soaked in syrup, similar to jalebis and churros.

The sweet is also found in Iranian cuisine as bamiyeh, and in Egypt, as balah ash-sham (Arabic: بلح الشام‎). In the Arab world, it is called asabe Zainab (Zainab's fingers), and it is customarily consumed during Ramadan.

It is made from unleavened dough lump (about 10 cm long) given a small ovoid shape with ridges along it using an 'icing' bag with a special nozzle. It is first deep-fried to golden colour and then sugar-sweet syrup poured over it when still hot. It is eaten cold.


Tulumba literally means 'pump', as does the Cypriot πόμπα.
