Awameh is a Damascene dessert that has been made and sold on the streets of Damascus Old City since the time of the Ottomans.

It is essentially the grand ancestor of the present day doughnut, though much smaller and sweeter.

The name “Awameh”, Arabic for “Floating”, is in reference to the way the bits of dough float on the surface of the oil as they fry.
