Kazandibi or kazan dibi (Turkish: Kazandibi, lit. 'bottom of kazan or cauldron') is a Turkish dessert and a type of caramelized milk pudding. It was developed in the kitchens of the Ottoman Palace and is one of the most popular Turkish desserts today.[1]

It is traditionally made by burning the bottom of tavuk göğsü.[1][2][3] A variant of kazandibi uses muhallebi instead.
