Yeah, you read that right. This newly formed women's agency appeals to those who are “interested in explosive belt and suicide bombing more than a white dress or a castle or clothing or furniture", as explained by their mission statement.

The agency known as Al-Zawra that “prepares sisters for the battlefield for jihadists” has been dubbed a “finishing school” for young women hoping to wed militants. To prepare women for their roles in day-to day jihadist life, al-Zawra offers classes in five areas: domestic work such as sewing and cooking, medical first aid, Islam and Sharia law, and weaponry.

The institute’s website also offers tips via their Twitter, Facebook and Youtube accounts, for women who want to train for jihad on their own.

One of their key tips: Learn how to cook.

“Open a Word document and write down quick recipes for cooking. Open the Internet and copy recipes from it. You are going to cook for Allah’s soldiers.”

The Islamic State chose to go with "Date Mush Balls" as their first ever recipe made publicly available. Its second recipe is a little more easy to swallow and of course a little more mainstream — pancakes.

This pancake recipe, though simple to follow, is explained extensively, complete with photos of each step, lest the Jihadi women get it wrong and end up making their men go about world domination on an empty stomach.

If you ever wondered what a mujahedeen eats... well you have your answer now.
