Ice Creams And Desserts
‘Booza’ is one of the most popular forms of ice creams in Syria. The Syrians love the booza because of its elastic texture.
Talking about desserts, Ba’lawah is one of the most popular desserts in Syria. It is a pastry with many layers in it. We fill Ba’walal with nuts and a specially prepared honey syrup called ‘atr’. We cut Ba’lawal into triangular pieces after preparation and serve it.
