For my next letter O I chose Oman , there is No other go I was surprised to see there is only a single country starting with letter O. Oman is another Arab state in southwest Asia which is officially called Arabian peninsula.The cuisine here is influenced by the neighboring middle eastern countries and have some similar dishes prepared here.Here the staple food is curry, cooked meats , rice and vegetables.The main meal is had in the mid day and dinner is usually lighter.A Omani table is said ti be not complete with seafood, the cuisine is similar to Asian and so you can see biryani's famous here even. Again I chose two fantastic dessert as Arab countries are famous for their varieties of sweets and desserts they relish. I chose one fried and one non fried dessert from omani cuisine which a very popular in the country and most popularly prepared for ramadan . Zainabs fingers are generally made with samosa pastry sheets here I have made with the filling inside but they are also made with out filling in lebanese cuisine too. They make a separate kind of dough for without filling one and give the impression on a strainer. I also made halawet ahmad which is some what similar to our semiya kesari But the addition of almond pd and coconut makes is sure super sinful. I used colored vermicelli to make them but you can also use the plain normal ones. My H loved both the sweets a lot and he enjoyed them a lot, he liked the zeinabs Fingers a lot more where as I like the halawet ahmed..Lets move on to the recipes now. I adapted both the recipe from Nestle.
Oman is famous for its special onami halwa I have shared the recipe earlier . The halwa is served to all their guest show the hospitality.
