Actually the Saka (Scythians) specialized in sea foods and rich fish sauces. I will try to find the references (I believe it was Herodotus who devulged on their dietary habits). 
The perceptive man is he who knows about himself, for in self-knowledge and insight lays knowledge of the holiest.

Please; we're not talking about names. The Turkmen word "Ekmek" exists in Turkish too, but they refer to two different things. Could you please tell me about Turkish and Azeri Katlama?

"Pyshme" is not "fried dough". If "fried dough" is the definition for "Pyshme", Iranians make this too. What's more, "Börek" is also a "fried dough" then. Do you have any picture of Turkish "Pishi", please?

Anyhow, what does "Pishi" mean in Turkish? I just wonder, since it's not from the same root "Pyshme" comes from - if you mean a similarity in name.

It would be great if you could provide a source for that. I thought that fish would the leat "prestigious" food for ancient nomades. At least I know that eating fish for Mongols meant to reach the "lowest level of poverty" meaning poor nomades don't have any horses and cattle so they are forced to catch and eat fish.

In modernday Turkish they say Bishi




In modernday Turkish Ekmek is used to describe bread wether it be Yufka, pide, lavash or just slised bread

Sorry for this late reply.

Thanks xi_tuje for the picture and explanation. The picture you posted here - Turkish "Bishi" - is called "Qoqun" in Turkmen - and it's different from "Pyshme". 

That was something new to me, thanks.

I'll take a picture soon, next time when my mother cooks it. I need a place (online storage) to upload it since AE regulates a limit on size of pictures one posts, I suppose.

You have a knife,  u have your meal. Its the most necessary tool and it is not unusual to eat only with a knife in mongolia. do u think that someone will carry all these kitchen tools during long time journeys on horseback? This type of life is what we call nomadic.

Nomads aren't gypsies who are allways on the road they had pastures they didn't move daily or weekly only when needed like change of season or war. So they had quite a few belongings
