Aish as-Saraya Dessert

Palestinian dessert called aish el saraya  is a sweet delight. It is made with either a biscuit or bread.  It is soaked with syrup made with sugar and flavored with lemon and rose water.  It is then topped with a milk custard .  A pebble like ingredient that when ground is used in many baked dishes.  It adds a lovely woodsy almost pine like flavor to the custard that is delicious.  The dish is topped with pistachio nuts and served with the same syrup the bread was soaked with.  It is easy to make and super delicious.



  • 1 Cup Suger
  • 1 Cup Water
  • ½ Lemon

There are two ways to make the dessert and I only recorded one. Apply the same method to the glass cup.
