I still crave something salty and crunchy, though. Enter ajeel- something like trail mix. It's a mix of all kinds of nuts and dried fruits like pesteh- pistachios, badam- almonds, tokhmeh- seeds like watermelon, pumpkin or sunflower, albaloo khoshk- dried sour cherries, anjeer- dried figs, toot- mulberries, keshmesh- raisins, etc. The sky's the limit! Mix and match as you please. The store, Tavazo, is especially well-known for their ajeel.
I hope these healthy eating habits continue for me. Whenever or however you celebrate, I wish you Eid Mubarak!
