“For as long as I remember, Saloona has been the comfort dish that is popular with all of us – my siblings and me. Mom’s saloona is renowned – a hearty meal with a colorful medley of stewed vegetables and tender meat falling off the bones. I doubt I can ever live up to my mom’s version, but my family loves this dish and I managed to make it healthier by using a lot less oil and serving it with a side of brown rice. To turn it into Thireed I ask the baker to make me khubiz (bread) using whole wheat.” – Zain Al-Zayani Bahraini Food Blogger
This is Zain’s recipe for the traditional Bahraini Saloonah that she shared with me as we talked about Ramadan in Bahrain (post on this link). She and her family love this saloonah and it is a staple Ramadan table option. Give it a try and see how you like it.
