    Pali's Favorites's Note:

    This is a VERY YUMMY rice stuffing recipe that is most commonly used in the Middle East. It is used to stuff lamb, chicken, and just about anything else you want! I will be posting recipes that will call for "hashweh"! *This recipe calls for lamb meat to be finely chopped, but I normally just use hamburger meat and it turns out AWEOMSE! :) Also, just a personally preference, but this really tastes great with both the almonds and the pine nuts! Enjoy!

      Fabulous! DH said this served as a bed of rice upon which I lay my Greek Stuffed Zucchini (Halal)(Kolokithakia Yemista)(Gluten Free and a fresh salad was a very good meal. I agree masha Allah. I did exchange the allspice for my own Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix which I am sure added more flavour. I did use ground beef as ground lamb was not available. I used Basmati rice and highly recommend that. Because of what I was serving it along with I decided on the pine nuts but would like to try it with both together for another meal. I used sea salt for the salt and freshly ground black pepper for the pepper. I omitted the nutmeg as it is a intoxicant and even in small quantities is haram. I chose to use my own homemade chicken stock for the broth in order to be as best flavourful as possible in the normal amount I cook my rice in. Instead of butter I used olive oil because we are dairy free. After cooking the rice on the stove for the time it took to cook my rice, not going by the recipe I baked it in the oven between 325F & 350F along with the cooked cusa (zucchini) on top. I did this to keep it hot but I guess it baked it a bit and made it tastier. This dish impressed and I will definitely be making it again and again. You could always add a handful of raisins to this too! I hope one day even to stuff a chicken in a lamb. But for now to stuff chicken and as a bed of rice as I used it today. Made for Ramadan Tag.

      This was simple, basic and deeelish. I prepared it with long grain brown basmati rice (4.5 cups of liquid), 93/7 ground beef and almonds. I chose to serve this as the main dish with Baked Butternut Squash and Parmesan Cheese Gratin on the side. They complimented eachother perfectly! Made for PAC Spring 2009 :)

      I love this dish, my local Middle Eastern Market makes it and I was attempting to recreate it. This recipe was perfect! I added some shredded chicken and used ground beef instead of lamb. Tasted very accurate to the original!
