• Mouloukhieh


    - 2 Cups dried Mouloukhieh
    -10 garlic gloves
    - 1 tsp ground Coriander
    - 1 tsp salt
    - 1 lb Meat cut into cubes or 2 lamb chunks or chicken
    - 2 big lemons

    You cut the meat into small cubes and you wash it, then put in a pan adding salt and 4 cups of water. Put on the oven till it is well cooked, don't forget to scoop the foam and throw it away, (you can also prepare the meat in a pressure cooker for faster cooking).

    You crush the garlic and mix it with the Coriander and a pinch of salt till they become like a dough. Then you fry it in a big frying pan with 2 tablespoon mazola oil on a low fire until the garlic becomes soft. then you add the 2 cups of mouloukieh and fry it a little by stirring continuously. Then you add them over the cooked meat and put the juice of the lemons (according to your taste). You let them boil for a while till it becomes thick then you turn off the stove and eat it with rice.


    Soak a cup of rice in hot water until it becomes cold then you wash it well twice or 3 times to get out the starch. Then you fry a hand full of vermicelli in 2 tablespoon mazola oil and add the drained rice over the cool vermicelli with tsp of salt and 1 cups cold water (There should be at least 1" of water over the rice). Put it over the fire to boil on medium and when the water is almost dried, you put the fire off.
