Dimah - - Karabeej Halab 93

Karabij Halab means Karabij Aleppo because karabij originated in Aleppo. It is a type of ma’moul filled with pistachios or walnuts, and served with Natef (the white cream in the picture. The main ingredient in making Natef is Shersh Al-Halaweh “Bois de Panama”). You can buy karabij or prepare it at home, but it is very difficult to make natef at home.
