Maamoul mad is one of the most traditional dishes in Lebanon. The main ingredients contained are: date paste, rose water., semolina granules, ghee ("It can be made with cream").
It was originated in ancient Egypt, where it is called kahk. No one knows how they became associated with Easter and Eid. Some say they are meant to remind people that at the end of the fasting period, there is a sweet reward, says Sawsan. The Jewish community in the region also loves maamoul.
