Kraim Ath-Thoum or Garlic Sauce is very popular in Syria, it is served with Shish Tawouk, grilled chicken, Shawerma, and french fries.

There are different recipes, some use mayonnaise or whole eggs or egg yolk or egg white or boiled potato. I don’t eat any kind of food that has raw eggs, so I make this sauce using cornflour.
