Modern is made from
Ingredients (Icindekiler): Water, Maize Starch, Extra Wheat Flour, 
Vegetable Oil, Egg.
(Su, Misir Nisastasi, Ekstra Un, Bitkisel Yag, Yumurta.)


For those that want to know what we are talking about--
Fully described here: http://www.saffetabdullah.com.tr/eng/gullac.php

My one cookbook Timeless Tastes. Turkish Culinary Culture has a recipe 
for gullac.
It indicates that you use  starch wafers. Rather like calling for a 
certain type of cookie crust.
