(Ma-ha-lah) ~ Thin Date Yeast Bread
Ma-ha-lah comes from the root halla which means sweet. This
bread has a unique flavour deived from the date juice. While it is cooked
in the same way as ra-gagg, the ingredients differ.
1 1/2 cup ripe sticky dates (seh)
Cover dates with warm water and leave aside for one houre. Mash them,
then sieve to remove all liquid. Mix yeast with 1 cup of warm water, add
salt and beat in the eggs.
