So excited to make this but I am wondering what the 5th ingredient is supposed to be. It only says 1 tsp. ground....

OOPs sorry I forgot it. It is nutmeg but if use mace in its place if you can get it. If not just leave it out. The cardamom is a great substitute for nutmeg.

Your dh will like this its a old traditional Yemeni recipe.

Oh goodie!!!! Im making this today, inshaAllah. I didnt know it was Yemeni until one of my Jordanian friends asked me if I knew how to make it. Of course, I said no but I remembered seeing your recipe here. Now I can say I know how. Lol! I hope I get it right. :p

Salam alaikum Noor. I used this modified to not contain an intoxicant, as nutmeg is one and I also heard it is not sold in Saudi Arabia because of that? Anyway I used less allspice in its place and the ground ginger. Jazak Allah kheiren for the recipe.
