What is this? Yes, another dessert. I still insist that I'm not much of a dessert person, despite recent posts to the contrary. Nick was making dinner, a delicious curried snapper soup with curried potatoes and home made paneer, an Indian cheese, and I felt I should bring a dessert. I don't do much Indian cuisine, but I make a good basbousa, which is a Middle Eastern dessert (cake-like, but definitely not a cake) with coconut and a whole lot of sugar. Oh, and those white thing sticking in it? Blanched almonds of course. It's simple, delicious, and odds are good you have most of the ingredients already. See the comments for the recipe.
