Can you guess what this is? (CYGWTI #3)


Zahra, one of my Omani colleagues, sent these pretty attractive homemade sweets as Eid-Ul-Fitr gift to us today. So utterly delicious!

We do not know its name, recipe details, etc. I can get you the details hopefully by Sunday.

Meanwhile, can you guess what this is?

Baklava? which is usually made of chopped nuts, usually walnuts or pistachios, layered with phyllo pastry, sweetened with sugar or honey syrup

Is this sweet Borma, or Boremah, or however you spell it - it's filled with pista nuts and honey - a friend brought it from Egypt. Delicious!
VKN, thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the invite to VCC, will try to participate, time permitting.

Hmm...my guess would be it is a pudding/halwa sort of thing made with fried vermicelli ?

Am guessing that it is some vermicelli preparation. Initially it looked like grated carrots to me but once i observed more carefully it definitely appears like vermicelli. May be it includes both carrots , raisins and vermicelli- some kind of halwa.

Hi Vkn,
Thanks for your comments on my blog and thanks for the invite
Looks like sevaiyan to me, at least a part of the ingredient

It could be Semiya Laddo or some kind of bakalava made with kataifi, shredded phyllo dough.
