Salep -

A starchy meal obtained from an Asiatic herb root. Before grinding, it is generally seen in the form of small, oval pieces of a rather dirty, whitish-yellow color, tough in texture and with a slightly salt, gummy taste. When pulverized and mixed with boiling milk, it swells to a semi-transparent pudding jelly, which is considered an excellent food for children and convalescents. In diluted form, it was formerly sold from salep-stalls as an early morning beverage for London workmen. The "salep-stalls," however, long ago made way for "Coffee Stalls."
