My first bamya

Today was a day for rejoicing. I made my first bamya (ocra) ever. The result was unexpectedly great. And the husband is willing to confirm this. I have been wanting to cook bamya for over a year but since I’m the queen of procrastination I kept puting it off.

But two days before we left Jordan last week, I went to my cousin Manal’s place, where she taught me all the tricks of making superb bamya. I tried it today for dinner and it worked wonderfully. Here is poof. Go ahead. You can click it; it gets bigger.
