Ahrisa was a type of spicy, spherical, baked food that was brown in color with small black bits mixed in.[1] In 32 BBY,[3] a bowl containing two balls of ahrisa,[4] some haroun bread, and a lamta[1] sat on the kitchen counter of the slave Shmi Skywalker's house in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine when she hosted the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn, Queen Padmé Amidala of Naboo, and the Gungan Jar Jar Binks for dinner during a sandstorm.[4] In around 9 ABY,[5] the bounty hunters Boba Fett and Din Djarin met with Mandalorians Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves in a diner on the desert world Lafete that listed ahrisa costing 6.12 on its menu.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Ahrisa first appeared in the 1999 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.[4] In the current canon, it was first identified in the 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, which was written by Adam Bray, Tricia Barr and Cole Horton.[1]

Ahrisa originally received its name in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first identified in the 1999 reference book Star Wars: Episode I The Visual Dictionary, written by David West Reynolds.[6] In Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, one ball of ahrisa is erroneously labeled as haroun bread.[1]
