Different Names, Same Dessert!
Lomet il Adi, otherwise known as Awameh, an Arabic dessert that is basically dough puffs that are fried, drained then soaked in sugar syrup. There is nothing innocent about these cute little bites of sugary heaven, but they are a treat nonetheless! The puffs are round balls of light pastry that had puffed as they were frying, leaving a somewhat hollow centre that makes a bite similar to chewing on a bubble yet with a chew! With the sugar syrup coating it and oozing out as you bite, your mouth sings the symphony of the sweet sugar rush. Highly addictive, so be warned!
Traditionally, this dessert is not infused with other flavours except the sugar from the sugar syrup; but again in my ‘Reviving Old Traditions‘ attempt I have infused it with a variety of flavours on many occasions, and the feedback was always great.Here, I have written for you the traditional recipe, and at the end of this post, I have included some flavour variations for you to try out.
