    UmmBinat's Note:

    This is wonderful atop Msabbha instead of the plain tahini! Tahini or tashi as it is called in Cyprus, is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is usually very thick and if left a long time you will see that oil is gathered on top. You do not have to worry about that you just mix it and it is just fine. The full version is one of the many dishes served as Cypriot mezes. Original recipe from

      Wonderful! Used it as a sauce but still added garlic (more than stated in the recipe............) salt, some cayenne powder and a dash of cumin. Finished off with parsley and poured over my veggies. This was a very tasty lunch. Since I have some left I I'll use it over falafel tomorrow. Will certainly make again.
      Thanks for posting.

      This was indeed quick and easy! It was amazing to see how it got thicker before it got thinner, and the finished product was absolutely delicious. After tasting it, I did add generous amounts of salt and garlic powder, and a dash of smoked paprika, even though I was using it as a sauce rather than a meze. It made for a lovely lunch over some falafel on a bed of salad veggies. I can't wait to try it in pita sandwiches. Made for Veggie Swap.

      Pretty easy, If you are adding the sauce to let's say a chicken or beef shawerma sandwich, I would suggest to add chopped up tomatoes and cucumbers along with the chopped up parsley.
