Another, Called Mudhahhaba (Gilded). Take a ratl of honey and pour into a pot, and put with it a half of clarified butter and as much saffron, pepper and cinnamon as needed. Put the pot on a fire of coals (embers), and when it boils and boils over, take eggs and break in a plate and throw on them almonds, walnuts and pistachios, and stir them with the eggs, and throw into the pot. Stir until mixed and done. And when it thickens, take from the fire and overturn the pot on its face, and serve.
