    Re: Cuisine in different arab countries

    i made this recipe today :


    Iraqi White Bean Stew

    this is a very popular stew in iraq.it is easy,simple and delicious. it's eaten for lunch with white rice(basmati or anbar)and green salad on the side.it is cooked with lamb meat, not beef. it is very important to note that when you boil the beans you don't get them fully cooked in order to allow them to be fully cooked in the stew itself


    Ingredients

    • 1 cup dry white bean, soaked over-night and cooked in the morning until they are half-done
    • 400 g lamb
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 4 tablespoons corn oil (or any oil you usually use)
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
    • salt and pepper


    Directions


    1. put the lamb meat in a pot, cover with water.
    2. bring to the boil,let it boil for about 30 minutes, lower heatand let it simmer for about 1 hour.
    3. in another pot, fry the onions in corn oil on medium heat until it becomes transparent.
    4. add the beans and tomato paste,stir for about 1 minute until the mixture is well-blended.
    5. add the crushed tomato and the spices and the remaining water of boiled beans (or 2 cups water).
    6. bring the mixture to a boil, let it boil for 15 minutes, lower the heat and let it simmer for 60-90 minutes.
    7. serve with rice and green salad.

    Tharid: The Prophet's (S.A.W) favorite dish

    "The superiority of 'Aisha over other women is like the superiority of Tharid to other meals."- Sahih Al Bukhari

    Tharid (Lamb and Chickpea Stew) Recipe: :inlove:



    Soaking: Overnight
    Total second-day time: 2 hours

    Ingredients:

    3 cups chickpeas
    3 lbs. lamb, cut into bite-sized cubes
    8 cups water
    6 cups finely chopped onion
    2 tsp. ground coriander
    1/2 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
    2 tsp. caraway seeds
    2 tsp. pepper
    6 eggs
    1 tbsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. saffron in 2 tbsp. water
    1/2 cup honey
    2 cups of bread crumbs
    6 rounds pita bread, quartered

    Directions:

    Put the chickpeas into a large bowl, cover them with cold water and let soak overnight. The next day, drain the chickpeas and set them aside.

    Put the lamb into a large stew pot and cover it with cold water. Bring to a boil and skim off the foam that rises to the top. Add the chickpeas, onion, ground and fresh coriander, caraway seeds and pepper; return to a boil, then reduce the heat. Break the eggs directly into the pot so that they will poach along with the stew. Let the stew cook for an hour to an hour and a half, until the chickpeas are done and the lamb is tender. Add salt and saffron, then remove 1/2 cup of broth from the pot, mix it together with the honey, and pour it back into the pot. Return to a boil and boil vigorously for 3 minutes.

    Put the pita wedges in the bottom of the serving bowl and pour the tharid over them; or serve the pita wedges alongside the tharid and so that guests may put a few in the bottom of an individual soup bowl, then spoon the stew over the bread.

    The food looks really nice. I've only ever tried arab food once in my whole life.

    It all looks very yummy! Especially the tagine. That is something I really want to try!

    The one time I did have arab food, I didn't really like it. Maybe I ordered the wrong stuff? It was lebanese I think. I've tried turkish food, something called a halep kebab? But they doused it with so much tomato. I don't like tomato-e dishes.

    But they make a mean burger!!!
    wAleykum Salaam,

    try different dishes and you will probably find the ones you will just love them!

    I love arab food and still i have some dishes i do not like.

    Oh i wish eating a kebab, dunno the halep one, but really when i was to Turkey i ate very good food mashallah, yummy...

    Burger i did not try, inshallah but i like tomatoes and dishes with them :inlove:

    eggs scrambled (or sunny side up), cooked with green peppers, mashed up or diced tomatoes (lots of it), onions, abit of garlic and a dash of black or white pepper...I don't if I'm missing anything, but it's a real simple dish (add the eggs after you've mixed and cooked the other veges/spices on the pan). I like to squirt in a bit of tomato sauce for a more tomato-ish flavor...then you eat it with pitta/lebanese bread....it's a tunisian dish.
    oooooo i make that for my family for breakfast...its really nice!! :up:

    harissa is.... a condiment made from crushed hot peppers, garlic, olive oil, caraway seeds ,coriander seeds and salt. It is used almost daily. It is the most important condiment used in Algerian, Libyan and Tunisian cooking.
    Harisa comes from the Arabic word for "to break into pieces," which is done by pounding hot chilies in a mortar.
