Baraziq is a delicious dessert from the Syrian kitchen. It is a dough made of flour, animal ghee and sugar, covered with roasted sesame, rich in fatty acids and magnesium, which helps lower blood pressure, promote bone and thyroid health, and strengthens the immune system. It is served on holidays as a kind of luxury dessert.

Baraziq

Despite its simplicity of ingredients, Al-Baraziq remained one of the most famous Arabic sweets, especially one of the best Syrian desserts in Eid, perhaps because its name is strange, distinctive and incomprehensible, or perhaps because one of its most important components is Arabic ghee, which is used in making most of the Arab sweets.
