Batata mahshiyeh, a.k.a “Arabian stuffed potatoes” is the recipe that you want to try.
Just a warning it is a lot of work and challenging to master the perfection of this recipe, but the process and the waiting are worth it.
Almost every version of stuffed potatoes in the middle east is the same. This recipe is a delicacy and hard to find in a restaurant because of the process of cooking.
To tell you something about me, my family on the side of my mom comes from Palestine, who immigrates to Chile and then to Ecuador. After a couple of generations, my member family lost the ability to speak Arabic, but the recipes from our country stay with us.
Every family gathering, especially at my grandma’s house, filled with delicacies from the middle east. I’m talking falafel, humus, Garaybas, shibaraq, Marmahon, and many more. It was heaven for my cousins and me. All that cooking of my grandma and my mother was my childhood when it comes to food (including Mexican food, of course), and I love it.
Without further due, let me tell you how is it done:
- 50 medium potatoes without pealing (They must be oval and smooth to work)
- One recipe pine recipe for the filling
- 1kg of lamp or meat
- 2 cups of rice
- ¼ kg butter or margarine
- Two teaspoons of curry
How to: the pine for the filling
- Wash the rice well with hot water
- Then with cold water and leave to style.
- Chop the meat or lamb without defatting it, in squares as small as possible.
- Add rice and season with salt, pepper, curry, butter, mixing well.
How to make Stuffed Potatoes:
- Wash and carved out the potatoes to make them hollow until the walls are as thin as possible. (Do not make it so weak the walls so they can hold the pine)
- Fill them without squeezing the pine.
- In a pot with boiled water, put the stuffed potatoes and cook over low heat.
- After boiling them, grab a skillet and fried them with the cooking oil to a point they get golden.
There you go, that is how you make the stuffed potatoes Arabian style. I am pretty sure you are going to love them as I love these delicious golden nuggets.
