Wakalim [1] is a Harari word applied to a special spiced meat stuffed in a skin and dried. It corresponds more or less to the European sausage, with the exception that the Europeans use pork, whereas the Harari use only beef. The Argobac [2] also have their own wakalim; but I shall confine myself to dealing with the Harari wakalim.

Mutabbak[1] is a small round sweet made of sesame seed and honey. It is usually prepared for a marriage feast, when it is provided by the bride’s parents and for kalam-masbar*.[2] But now some people, mostly Arabs, have begun to sell it as a sweet under the name of mugalgal.[
