This sumagiyya recipe is a recognition for my auntie, An’am Dalloul, who was killed in an Israeli airstrike in November 2023. She was known in my family for this conventional Gazan stew overflowing with sheep, chickpeas, and chard, which she’d frequently make for Eid.

While any assortment of chard will do, rainbow chard will loan the completed dish a pleasant pinkish tone. Entire sumac berries can be bought on the web (if inaccessible, substitute ground sumac in sync 2 and bring just to a stew prior to soaking; try not to strain). Cooked tahina (otherwise known as red tahina or tahina hamra), which has a profound, nutty flavor, can be found at some specialty merchants, however normal tahini can be utilized in its place. In the event that you have a low capacity to bear heat, seed the chiles. Sumagiyya is superb presented with olives, cut radishes, red chile glue, warm Arabic bread, and grouped pickles.
