As its name suggests, Topa melts into a creamy concoction over low heat, allowing the flavors to meld perfectly.

Served warm, it holds a cherished place in Bosnian and Herzegovinian culture, particularly in Sarajevo, where it accompanies piping hot somun bread, ideal for dipping.

During the Ramadan iftar, the breaking of the fast at sunset, Topa takes center stage as either a first or second course. The tradition surrounding its serving varies from household to household, often sparking debates on whether Topa should precede or follow the customary iftar soup, most commonly Begova čorba.
