Bint al Sahn

Bint al-sahn (translated as "daughter of the plate"),[1][2] also known as sabayah, is a Yemeni sweet dish made from a dough, which is prepared by mixing white flour, eggs,[3] yeast and clarified butter, known as semn (سمن). It is baked in multiple layers in an oven, which is served with honey on top[1][3] and sprinkled with habbat as sowda (Nigella sativa).
