I swear if it wasn't physically impossible I would swear I was pregnant :angry:

I've been craving a dish my husband fed me in Egypt for almost a year now and I'm going to go insane if I can't make it.

Anywho.... I need date syrup to make it and I don't have a ME/NA store here in my lil town and I've looked online BUT the only place I can find it is in the UK and they want to charge me like $40 to ship a $10 case here. That's unreal! :angry:

I know some of you girls live near those stores and I am BEGGING someone to buy me some date syrup and mail it to me... I'll pay all the charges... either I'll wire you the money or send a check or however you want! :help: Surely it won't cost $40 bucks to mail it within the US right??? :unsure:

I will be going this weekend to the Arabic store, I can look and see if they have it. The store is kind of small.

Moody, the dish is aseeda rubb and when he first made it I actually laughed and said I wasn't eating it. I watched him cook it and I was like.... OK habibi when are ya gonna bake the bread???? He said no we're gonna eat it like this... I was like :blink: ya habibi it's dough!!!! :wacko: Anyway he talked me into it and OMG I LOVE it! I can make it I just need the date syrup and it's taking an act of Congress to find it.

Someone PM'd me and I'll get you my contact details and SHUKRAN to everyone who offered to help!!!!!

is it made with bulgur wheat?

He just made it with flour. I have noticed there is a variation on how to make aseeda depending on where you are in the world... in the gulf, for instance, I read that they add a lot of stuff in it before putting the sauce on but Libyan style is just basically a dough formed into a mound with a hole in the top to hold the sauce and you just eat it with your fingers.... the sauce is the date syrup mixed (deluted really) with butter and it's just sooooooooooooo good....

Now is not a good time to be thinking about this :lol:

Sudan style

UAE style

38. Aseeda

Ingredients:

2 cups of flour

3 cup water

Honey

Butter

Oil

Salt

Water, salt to be in frying pan & heat it up. Add 1 spoon of oil. Add flour while stir the mixture quickly with wooden spoon. Remove the mix and keep stirabout in a large bowl until it soften. (Become aseeda) Add some of the boiled water to the aseeda and heat it for 10 min. Again beat the mixture for it to be soften and for getting a thick mixture. Pour some hot butter or honey. Libyan style

If anyone has any other variations on how to make this dish I'd be open to trying them all as well :D

It's almost like the aseeda from Yemen only Yemenis don't eat theirs as a dessert. Yemeni aseeda is made with bulgur wheat that boiled then self rising flour or Jiffy baking mix is added. It's served with soup made with either chicken or lamb (basically just the broth is used), helba, and zhug. I miss that soooo much! YUMMY!!

Date syrup?

Do you have a natural foods or health foods store nearby? You might find it there.

Are you anywhere near Dearborn? They have really good mahshi Cedarland and other restaurants in the area. It doesn't quite compare to the mahshi my MIL makes but it's acceptable and I'm sure far tastier than anything bought at Walmart.
