Yes it's the way you spelled it. It's hard to understand arabic words when they are written in phonetic english, that's why "we" (the internet generation of arabic speakers) use numbers when not typing in arabic text, hence the two words spelled do2a and do3a2. Anyway, the grinding pepper thing, I remember doing that to my brother when I was younger. It's really silly and childish and I don't ever recall seeing a grown woman doing it.so what do you call the mix that is added to Molokhiya? we cal it Du'a.
Perhaps it is the way I spelt it?
I just asked Sherif and he said they always called it Du'a meaning spice mix and the gesture was reffered to as the same.
See, this is the situation for most things!! :lol:
PS Tahia Carioca said this and made the gesture in a film.
What about if i spell it Doqa?
I will try to remember the film..
