I am here with a very simple and delicious recipe from the Lebanese Cuisine. In my quest to search Levantine Cuisine I have come across such wonderful recipes ranging from salads to dips to spicy vegetables. Levantine Cuisine includes recipes from Syria , Lebanon, Palestine.Israel, Jordon , Cyprus(East Mediterranean shore). I wanted to make so many recipes but stuck to a simple one as I am travelling and have limited access to many Ingredients.
