Morning Diary Day 5 – The suburbs of Jordan

Part 1

September 14 2014

In the suburbs of Jordan between Dabouq Amman and Salt

If you ever visit Jordan, you will love the people. Meet the locals and Spend a day in the suburbs of Jordan. This here is the residence of Sukhtian Family, beautiful souls and a beautiful house. My friend Anoud planned a cooking competition that ended up with great chefs making yummy dishes. Walnut salad, pasta with tomato sauce, grilled chicken “BBQ Mashawi style”, Cannelloni, dark chocolate cake pudding and the best of all homemade Nabulsi Knafeh that is to die for. Make sure you ask for the Knafeh if you visit Jordan, Palestine or Lebanon… Just Yummieee… All pictures are taken with my favorite Canon 7D… Oh and my very favorite song of the day Andrew Belle – In my veins.

Have you ever tried making Home made – Hummus?

A Yummy Dish

Mulukhiyah.

Mulukhiya is a truly delicious green leaves used as a vegetable in the Middle-East, they look like mint but taste somewhat like spinach or somewhat nothing like spinach but you know what I mean. Once cooked, Mulukhiyah results looking slimy and greenly and mostly not too appealing.

At SUZIE|S Kitchen which is also common between the Palestinians and Jordanians, Mulukhiah comes either in leaves and we call it rough Mulukhiah Khishineh “خشنه”or comes as a soup and we call it soft Mulukhiah Na’ameh “ناعمة”, it is also cooked with chicken or beef.

Give this recipe a try, you will love it 🙂 – We live once, try new food every day.

Food is one of the topics that unites the world together, we all strive to learn new recipes, new food, new taste, to add a new dish to a table that unites families, friends, neighbors, colleagues, social events, private events, public events and the world. What is better than to share, to love, to help, to feel alive, to care, to feel compassionate for one another.

My dish for today, unites the Middle-Eastern & North African cuisine, and it is a dish that is cooked for the world to try and taste. Today I want to tell you more about this famous Mulukhiyah, pronounced in over 10 different accents, and has few different names that all sound similar: ملوخية Mulukhiyah, Mloukhieh (is how I say it), Molokhia, Molokhieh, Molokheyyah Mloukhya, Moroheiya, Mrenda, Murere, Apoth, Kren-Kre or maybe not too much of a similarity 🙂 in the west you might need to ask for Jew’s Mallow or Jute Mellow or Nalta.
