    Yemeni girl's Note:

    It is a very simple yet decadent dessert. Traditionally, fet-ta is made with Yemeni flat breads like Qamata or Khubz, but tortillas can be used. Before making fet-ta, warm the tortillas directly on the the gas burner. This recipe calls for Semn, which is also known as ghee. You can substitute it for melted butter, but flavor will be different. Ingredients aren't exact.
