    hoda's Note:

    This sweet is one of the most famous sweets in Iraq. It has a great taste, simple and it's made by women in their home and not sold in bakeries. Most home-made sweets in Iraq are poured in small flat round plates (1 plate for a person) and eaten with a spoon, or you can pour it in a big plate and everyone have their share of it.
