Dimah - - Jilantin Al-Lahem 90

My mom learned this recipe from a book, unfortunately the book didn’t mention the origin of this dish. Jilantin Al-Lahem is prepared from ground meat, onion, chopped parsley, bread crumbs, nutmeg, and egg, mixed together then formed into a log then wrapped and cooked in water. I served it with sautéed potatoes, and I’ll share the recipe of the potatoes in this post.
