Wakalim  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  also have their own wakalim; but I shall confine myself to dealing with the Harari wakalim.
Mutabbak 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*. But now some people, mostly Arabs, have begun to sell it as a sweet under the name of mugalgal.[
