An arabian sweet delight! As easy as cake to make and delicious with the syrup.

Ha...ha..yang  ada kencing manis jangan rapat....kek suji ini cukup terkenal di negara teluk. Setiap negara mempunyai panggilanya tersendiri...kalau di Eygpt di panggil Basbousa..di Turki dipanggil Revani..dan hampir setiap negara teluk ada manisan ini.

Manisan ini direndam dengan air gula dan ditabur kekacang seperti badam atau pistacchio. Mudah membuatnya dan merupakan favourite untuk berbuka puasa.
