“What is the English name for Banak?”
Banak is something the majority of Kuwait’s people enjoy eating especially during winter time, its some sort of seed with a hard brown shiny cover which after breaking gives u access to the nice salty green pulp inside it, actually its not salty by nature but it becomes salty during the process of preparing that involves soaking and/or boiling in salty water..
Banak comes in different sizes…
medium ( Bulgarian AKA Jaw Breaker )
Large ( Turkish … AKA Dentist’s Nightmare )
Personally I prefer the medium/Large ones at least u get something that’s somehow worth risking the health of your jaws and teeth.. small ones usually crush and make a mess if u apply too much pressure.
For the past few days this question has been haunting me ” whats the English name for banak ? ” i searched all over the net it seems as it is a Kuwaiti invention or something…
So if u have any information about it please feel free to share it in the comments section below.
