Fried almonds

Fried almonds. Mix some rose or other kind of water with almonds, it should be dense like the porridge, add some hot butter, then some saffron, once it is starting to cook, add some bread crumbs, salt and a bit of sugar, once you're about to serve it, add lots of cinnamon, it will look like scrambled eggs. Believe me without doubt, my friend, that this dish will give strength to the patient, especially if the patient drinks some good wine.
