Harissa is a Middle Eastern dish of boiled, cracked, or coarsely-ground wheat, mixed with meat (usually chicken). Its consistency varies between a porridge and a dumpling. Harissa is a popular dish known in the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf, especially during religious occassions like Ramadan, Arbaeen.

Today our colleague Ibrahim brought Harissa in the morning to mark Arbaeen, 40th day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein at the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD. Arbaeen was observed yesterday.

Thanks Ibrahim!
