Qatiq from Azerbaijan

Qatiq is a fermented milk drink from the Turkic countries. It is considered a more solid form of yogurt than ayran.[1] In Bulgaria катък is not a drink, but a spread that has the consistency of mayo.

Some of the local names include: qatıq in Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan, ҡатыҡ in Bashkortostan, қатық in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, катык in Kyrgyzstan and Tatarstan, gatyk in Turkmenistan. It is known as къатыкъ among the Crimean Tatars and as қатиқ among the Uyghurs.

In order to obtain qatiq, the boiled milk is fermented for 6-10 hours in a warm place. Sometimes red beets or cherries are used for coloring. The drink may be kept in a cool place for two or three days. If stored longer, the drink will turn sour; it may still be added to high-fat soups, though. The chalop soup is made from qatiq in Central Asia.

When sour milk is strained in a canvas bag, the resulting product is called suzma.[2] Dried suzma, or kurut, is often rolled into marble-size balls.[3]
