Kandil simidi is a salty variant of the Turkish simit pastry which is eaten during the Kandil religious holiday. It is ring-shaped and coated in sesame seeds, and is sometimes flavoured with mahlep. During the five nights of Kandil, these pastries are baked and offered to neighbours and relatives.

Kandil simidinin hazırlanma amacı, aç ve açıkta kalanlara ikram yapmaktır.  Bu davranışın bugüne uzantısı da 'Kandil Simitleri'dir.
