Maacaroun bi kishk combines dough balls cooked in kishk soup Maacaroun bi kishk recipe

Maacaroun bi kishk combines dough balls cooked in kishk soup! Rich with carbohydrates and proteins, this soup is commonly prepared by dwellers of the elevated mountains during cold winter days. The dough balls are pressed on a fork or a sieve which gives them the pattern of the “sweet maacaroun” and makes them absorb the soup easily. Kawarma is sometimes added to the kishk, hence adding its caloric content of course! In the Soueidah region in Syria, Maacaroun bi kishk is also prepared with slight differences; the dough is cooked in hot water, drained then sprinkled with kishk, olive oil and minced garlic.
