“Saltah is one of the main dishes in San'a and is considered Yemen's national dish. This dish was found in the Toronto Star. The data base wouldn't allow me to add zhug and hulbah. You'll need 2 tbsp of each. Zhug is a kind of Middle Eastern pesto and hulbah is Fenugreek paste. Purchase them in Middle Eastern grocery stores.”
