Simsimeyeh (Sesame Brittle)

W for West Bank. It is a land locked territory wedged between Israel, Jordan and the Dead sea. It has been a conflict ridden area for more than 50 years now.

But it is very interesting to note that in spite of the conflict, development and education have not taken a back seat.

Regarding this addictive Brittle, it is supposed be a favorite snack for kids and adults alike and our family totally agrees. I found it tastes better with honey instead of the traditional jaggery/sugar syrup which we make back home.

Ingredients - 

Sesame Seeds 1/2 cup
Honey 2 tsp

Simsimeyeh (Sesame Brittle)

Method Of Preparation -

Dry roast the sesame seeds on medium heat until they turn a shade of brown and start to crackle. 

Reduce the heat to low and drizzle the honey.

Remove from heat and mix well so all the seeds are coated with honey.

Transfer onto a greased plate or parchment lined cookie tray. The mixture will be sticky, so don't attempt to smooth it.

Set aside for 2-3 minutes. Pat into a thin layer pushing in the stray seeds with your fingers. Smooth the top and let it cool for about 10 minutes.

Slice into required shapes with a strong knife and enjoy.
