Saltah (Arabic: سلتة) is a Yemeni dish. It is widely eaten in northern parts of the country. It is mainly served for lunch. The base is a brown meat stew called maraq, a dollop of fenugreek froth, and sahawiq or sahowqa (a mixture of chillies, tomatoes, garlic, and herbs ground into a salsa). Rice, potatoes, scrambled eggs, and vegetables are common additions to saltah. It is eaten traditionally with Yemeni flat bread, which serves as a utensil to scoop up the food.
Saltah is an old Yemeni dish some say was introduced thousand years ago. It is said that its ingredients were only Maraq and Hilbah (Fenugreek). It has been developing since then and is split into two dishes: Saltah and Fahsah.
