Special sweets for Ramadan

In Hejazi it is called ṭurumba  directly from Italian: tromba, but in Egyptian and some Arab cuisines it is called balaḥ ash-Shām, literally “Syrian dates” or “Damascene dates,” though the name may have come from “şambali”, another Turkish dessert (the “Şam” in “şambali” corresponding to “Shām” in “balaḥ ash-Shām” and both referring to Damascus). In Iraqi cuisine it is known as datli , directly coming from Turkish word tatlı.
