Arabic term or phrase: فاطَّة
Hi everyone, I am reading an arabic novel and I found a sentence which I could not fully understand. I think it comes from local dialects, in particular Palestinian or Lebanese dialects. The speaker is the grandmother who is describing her nephew, they don't get along well.
هذا بَنْدوق، لحمة فاطَّة من قِدر
Thank you.
