Re: holy shniky.. stand back!!
"Akhla" means slang like "great, wow, terrific" in Arabic.
The taste is not so Akhla but what you describe here is terrific, IF you are prepared to see the often more than rare explosion. Once I had half a coal fly and burn my pants and into my beard it tangled too! I think that burning hair is not as smelly as Akhla.
