  • About

This kishik salad is typical of Garara, an agricultural region in the central part of the Gaza Strip.


  • 1 round of kishik or 3 tablespoons powdered or 5 tablespoons liquid kishik


Moisten and crush the kishik as described in the previous recipe. If you are using powdered kishik, mix it with about 5 tablespoons of water until a smooth, thin paste forms. If you are using liquid kishik, you may skip this step.

Pierce the skins of the tomatoes and broil them
