With over four million followers on Instagram, Sana Khan is a popular face from the Indian film industry. Worked across genres and languages, the actress started her career as a model long back. She featured in several advertisements, films and shows before she decided to quit the industry all together and get married to a highly-religious man a few years back. While her decision shocked a lot of people, she expressed that it was for “humanity” in an interview. Today, we see her as a proponent on God and religion, with her social media full of her new life. She started her holy journey for Mecca during Ramadan and has finally completed Umrah, a pilgrim ritual for Muslims. However, she hasn’t returned home yet and is enjoying a few days of relaxation in the city. 

Sana Khan might have given up all worldly pleasures to work for society but her love for food is not going anywhere anytime soon. The actress was making us envious of her gold-plated tea and saucer that she was holding, posing to drink from it while at the Burj Khalifa. This time, we saw her relishing a traditional Arabic breakfast in Mecca. The former model and actress began by showing us a dip that she was making. There was some curd on the plate and she poured some olive oil over it. Then, she sprinkled some seasonings on it. Next, we see her with a bowl of beans. In the audio, she tells us that is a classic Arabic dish called ful. These are beans which are eaten for almost all the meals in the Arab region. 

Here’s what we are talking about.

A crunchy snack that can be baked, fried or even eaten raw, kibbeh is a popular appetizer in the mezze platter. Hailing from Lebanon originally, the starter is made from ground meat, mixed with bulgur, onions, pine nuts, curry powder and a host of spices. This dish is usually served on celebratory occasions, along with some mint leaves and a creamy yoghurt dip.
