light gazing, ışığa bakmak

"At any Konya feast, one sweet dish follows every two savoury dishes. So after our yogurt soup (topped with a bit of fat from the other soup – not strictly traditional, said Nevin) and a pilav mixed with chickpeas and topped with chunks of lamb, we had irmik helvası. Then came a tangy okra soup and some pilav topped with fried meat. As friends of the family, we were treated to an extra portion of meat concealed under the rice (this is quaintly called denizaltı, “under the sea”). At the end came the soupy rice pudding zerde, which in Konya is not necessarily coloured yellow with saffron."
