If my mother wants to surprise me for lunch, then it is Fatet Jaj فتة الدجاج which stands for chicken fatteh. Yummy, this dish is by far one of my very favorite dishes. It is very easy to prepare and is delicious. The only disadvantage about it, is you have to eat it as soon as it is served or prepare it like you prepare a fajita which is each ingredients separate and mixed just before you start eating. Reason is it includes fried bread and once the fried bread is soaked it looses the crunch, which is part of the taste.

How to make a Middle-eastern chicken fatteh dish jaj طريقة عمل فتة الدجاجI have posted before during Ramadan Fatet Bitinjan or what stands for Eggplant Fatteh which is also delicious, Fatteh in general is a famous dish severed differently in different ingredients and we Arabs just love it. I mean it really is delicious so I do suggest you give them both a try.

I find cooking is so much fun, and specially when trying something for the very first time, I think the origin of this dish is Syrian, and Syrians have great taste in food and are usually fantastic when preparing them. Apparently they serve this dish as a side dish, but when we have it for lunch it is always the main dish, and believe me it is very filling, am not sure how it can just be a side dish, unless it is serves in small quantity but then it is not fulfilling because it is too good to be in small portions.

Anyway, this dish is very highly recommended by me, and do not be afraid to add lemon and garlic to taste, and my favorite part is SUZIE|S speciality adding Filfil ou Limoun and you can find the full recipe in my Mansaf post.

I am so lucky to have my mother as my best chef, and today I hope to be your best source of recipes. Have a wonderful meal and please do give this a try to let me know what you think.

Bon Appetit

How to make one of the most delicious Middle-Eastern meat pie “Sfeeha | Lahm bi Ajeen – لحم بعجين|صفيحة”

Once you try a Sfeeha, you are hooked. This Middle-Eastern lamb pine-nuts pie or savory pastry taste like heaven, they are traditionally served as an appetizer, sometimes with mini pizzas and other savory pastries as finger food. Sometimes they are made in bigger size and quantity to replace a main meal for lunch.

Ask any Middle-Eastern about them and they must have a favorite place or recipe. The best part is that wherever you have them, they are slightly made different. Sometimes the pastry is very thin, sometimes it is thick, sometimes different spices are added, sometimes it is just concentrated with meat and onion, some people eat them with yogurt, some eat them with tahini, either way, and anywhere they are mostly very tasty.

My mother’s recipe below is really worth millions, she makes one of the best Sfeeha I have ever had in my life, not just because they are my mothers, but really the taste is just exquisite. You can easily remove some of the ingredients for a different juice, and it is up to you how spicy you wish to make your Sfeeha.

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.

You can fill the pastry with almost anything, making your pie sweet or savory. Most pies are traditional and known internationally like: Chicken pie, Cheese pie, Meat pie, Apple pie, Pecan pie, Custard pie, Strawberry pie and Sugar pie. And there are signature pies that are made in specific bakeries or online recipes like: Chocolate & Pumpkin pie, Hot fudge brownie sundae pie, Sweet potato pie, Dark chocolate raspberry pie, Pizza Pie, Millionaire Pie, Tomato pie, Oreo pie and I can keep going on and on.
