salaams, i was wondering is this the same a shata, the saudi hot sauce/chutney.

Arabic Bites said...

Hi Gloria,
Thank you for your comment,in fact, it's not soup it's sauce & you can Serve with any Arabic gulf rice dish.

salaams sayeeda,
Daqous is not the same,but you can add alot of red hot pepper to make it hot & similar to shata.
The only saudi hot sauce I know is Salata Hara & for this no cooking required.
