A fail-proof recipe to prepare the famous semolina (smeed) cake. It has a much denser flavor that those made with all-purpose flour. Semolina is mixed with butter, yogurt. Syrup sweetens the cake and is added after it is done. Tahini adds a surprising yet great final touch to Harisi.

Bami (Okra Stew)
A hearty stew perfect for those chilly days. Typically served with rice and pickles on the side. My favorite are eggplant pickles. You can use either small okra or chopped long okra.
Hummus (Chickpea dip)
Who has not heard of hummus? One of the most traditional dips in Syria. Its unique texture and taste will make any sandwich a great meal. You can’t have kabab or any grilled meat without it.
Arabic Bean Salad
Warm beans are mixed with garlic, tomatoes and lemon vinaigrette. Cumin completes the flavor and is a must in all bean dishes. This dish makes a healthy tasty breakfast.
Mutabal (Eggplant dip)
This is an easy cool dip perfect with meat dishes and summer meals. Eggpants are grilled and chopped or mashed.
A great dip and appetizer for hot summer days. Its unique tangy flavor is because of the use of pomegranate concentrate and fresh pomegranate. It is perfect with grilled meat, kobheh and all kinds of meat dishes.
