This recipe is very simple. The dough is made from flour, butter, baking powder, salt and water, it must rest for two hours before use. Then the dough is filled with a mixture of cheese and parsley (you can use other filling), and deep fried.

Dimah - Musakhan Spring Rolls 5

Musakhan is a Palestinian dish. It is composed of chicken cooked with onions, sumac, olive oil and fried pine nuts atop one or more taboon breads. I used chicken, onion, sumac and olive oil as a filling and wrapped it in spring roll wrappers.

Chicken Luncheon Meat

Do you eat canned meat?

This question was asked by my professor in organic chemistry lecture, everyone answered: yes, sometimes (in cooking meat is fresh, but sometimes we buy canned luncheon), and he said: it is better to stop eating canned meat, because it can cause cancers due to nitrites, and it is high in sodium.

I want to make chicken luncheon meat at home, not only because of cancer, but I don’t trust companies that make canned meat and my reasons are:

1.Perhaps companies make chicken luncheon from chicken meat, bones and skins (have you watched Jamie Oliver in “Jamie’s School Dinner”, he said that chicken nuggets are made from chicken bones and skins, yuck!).

2. Or they make it from chicken and beef (oh, I hate beef, but I like lamb).

3. Or they make it from chicken and pork. Pork and its derivatives are not Halal for Muslims, (some luncheon products are Halal certified).

So homemade is the best!
