I love Mjaddarah! I think I'm going to have to give this recipe a shot!

I have seen you mention yoghurt salad (I know this as a greek dish "Zaziki?") It should be a cucumber salad. Do you make something similare, and, if so, is there a receipe?


Wow! This is exactly the receipe my family has used for generations! We've always called it "jutala" and I knew another family that had it a little closer "judara" but I've been trying to figure out how to spell it forever.

Mjaddarah! This is one of the first 'Arabic', actually Middle East, foods I came to love. My son, now 22, used to as a toddler, eat Mjaddarah with a spoon in one hand and a fork in the other. He would keep one in the air at a time and the other in his mouth while alternately spooning or forking the food to keep the rhythm. I have photos of him in this delight.

There are other Middle East recipes that would delight Western pallets. Among them is Mglubah, Capsah, Manseff, and others better known, such as Taboule and Hummus.
