Ahrisa was a type of spicy, spherical, baked food that was brown in color with small black bits mixed in. In 32 BBY, a bowl containing two balls of ahrisa, some haroun bread, and a lamta 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. In around 9 ABY, 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.
