    L'ecole's Note:

    From "Any critic who complains that Jewish food has no taste has never tried marak Temani. Typically served for Sabbath dinner, this cilantro scented beef (or sometimes chicken) soup gets an extra hit of heat and flavor from the Yemenite spice mixture hawaij, which combines cumin, turmeric, cardamom, cloves and coriander. As Joan Nathan writes in 'The Foods of Israel Today,' the recipe for hawaij 'varies from family to family,' allowing cooks to put their personal stamp on supper. Marak Temani (literally 'Yemenite soup' in Hebrew), which can be kept warm for the Sabbath lunch and makes regular appearances during the week, is served as the centerpiece of the meal, along with pita or, more traditionally, a Yemenite flatbread called salouf."
