Back when the region was mostly rural, this luscious silken pudding was enjoyed during the wheat harvest, a more rustic but no less delicious version of the more common starch-based milk puddings of the modern-day Levant. It is altogether different from the Syrian pudding with the same name. Generally served at room temperature, it is also delicious chilled.
