Sadly, the last week of aprilisforarabfood is here and it's all about essential pantry items! I know you're probably looking at the meghli thinking "how's caraway esential?", well, this post isn't actually about the Caraway that happens to be the main ingredient in meghli! It's actually all about the assortment of nuts that goes on top of this decadent dessert.
Nuts are extremely essential pantry items in Palestinian households. My mom will actually go nuts if we run out of nuts! 😂 (shes gonna kill me when she reads this). But really, nuts, especially pine, almond, walnut and pistachio are a must have in all her freezers/pantries. I say those words with an "s" because everywhere she goes to stay for longer than a month, she needs to have all 4 of those types available!
We garnish all of our main dishes with fried almonds or pine nuts, we garnish most of our desserts with pistachios, and walnuts go into the fillings of many sweet and savoury dishes. Nuts play such an important role in Arab cuisine, and most times a dish is not complete without them
