Nasrallah's translation of Al Warraq repeatedly refers to "samidh 
flour (high in starch and bran-free)." Does anyone know, in modern 
terms, what that would be? I've mostly used semolina, since that 
shows up frequently in other period Islamic recipes, but I have no 
reason to think it's actually right and it probably isn't.
