Kalburabastı (sometimes spelled kalbura bastı[1]) or kalburabasma[citation needed] (Turkish, also known as hurmašice or urmašice in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and all of former Yugoslavia), and sometimes also known under the name of hurma, are syrup-drenched pastries[2] that have a riddled appearance. They are featured among the favorite specialities that are prepared during the Islamic holidays, including the three-day Eid al-Fitr (called Şeker Bayramı or "Candy Feast" in Turkish language) and Eid al-Adha.
