Biwaz is prepared from Arabic flat bread topped with (dibs Al-fleifleh “red pepper pastes”, onion mixed with sumac, and parsley). Biwaz is always served with Mashawi such as  lamb shish kabab (lahmeh qetae’ meshwiyeh), minced lamb meat kabab (lahmeh meshwiyeh), and chicken shish kabab (shish tawouk).

Let’s make Biwaz:

Notes and Tips

I used homemade dibs al-fleifelh (red pepper paste) and here is a closer photo of Homemade Dibs Al-Fleifleh. And here are two photos of two brands (Syrian Brand) (Turkish Brand), also you can use sweet red pepper paste or hot red pepper paste, it’s up to you.

I used homemade Arabic flat bread.

How to serve Biwaz with Mashawi: A plate is lined with the biwaz bread (bread topped with red pepper and the onion mixture that we prepared), the grilled meat is added hot to the biwaz bread, and kept in the bread so it is served with it.
