I bring to you one more traditional Tunisian recipe : Bouza.
This delight can be presented as a cream or a sweet drink. This dessert is typically prepared during the holy month of Ramadan.


  • 3 table spoons of sesame paste
  • 3 table spoons of hazelnut paste
  • 6 table spoons of ground sorghum
  • 6 tbsp of sugar (or more)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 cups of milk
  • Mix the sesame paste and the hazelnut paste with some water and blend to have a smooth texture.
  • Mix the sorghum with the rest of water then add the sesame and hazelnut pastes.
  • Bring the mixture to boil while stirring.
  • When the cream becomes thick, add milk and sugar. Continue stirring and bring to boil again.
  • Bouza can be presented as a thick cream or as a drink if you add some more milk.
