Question

Thank you for a quick response. I want to learn to cook some of your dishes because I met a young Iraqi who has sought asylum in the US and he misses the home cooking he had back home. I’m Puerto Rican, yet I know if I cook an Iraqi dish might bring a smile to his face. He’s a friend of my (adult) children, and he was at our Giving Thanks dinner last night. My first dish to make for him will be rice - he expressed how much he missed rice. Which recipe would you suggest? And I’ll purchase that one. Again, thank you so much for the quick response.

Sincerely,

PS: do you think a rice cooker would be a good present for him?

Answer

Hello,

Well, I thank you for opening your home to the young Iraqi, I strongly feel that he miss his home country and its food. please check out this rice recipe. https://www.baghdadcuisine.com/single-post/2019/10/18/Fluffy-Arab-Rice-with-Garnish-on-Top.

Questions

 ​ 

Hi! I've found a recipe that is supposed to be an Iraqi dish on a Swedish website, but I cannot find it anywhere else. The blogger calls it "hamise", are you familiar with that? It looks like this: https://irakiskmat.se/hamise-irakisk-pyttipanna/

 

The ingredients are beef, eggplants, potatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, a yellow onion, noomi basra, and spices. Both the meat and the vegetables are chopped, not minced.

 Answer

 ​

I am not familiar with the name of the dish, but as you describe the ingredients it could be Tabsey Baytinijan (Eggplants dish) you can check the recipe on my website. As I looked at the picture, there is a dish that the Iraq people usually make at breakfast time it has meat, onion, parsley, and potatoes, then they add spices, one of the spices is Kurkum (turmeric) to make the potatoes yellow in color as for the name is called potatoes and meat (check the recipe in the website).

 

As for the word Hamise, as I searched it on the Internet in Arabic, it is a Saudi Arabian dish. But it could be in an Iraqi dish in a different part of Iraq.

Question 

  

Thank you for creating such a wonderful site! I have a question regarding Samoon. It says 4 tablespoons of yeast. Is this correct and if so - what kind of yeast do you use? I have the granulated instant yeast. I’m trying your Lablabi next!

 

Answer

 

Welcome to Baghdad Cuisine, thank you for your kind comments. I updated the Samoon Recipe with the correct measurements (it is teaspoon and not tablespoon) also I added more pictures. Thank you so much for the correction. The yeast I use is Fleischmann's instant dry yeast (the best way to keep yeast fresh and good to use always is to store the leftover package in the refrigerator). Good luck in making the Samoon and Lablabi recipe. Any further questions I will be more than happy to answer. Also, all your corrections are Welcome. Thank you again.
