stuffed cabbage

so this is one of my most favorite dishes , being Irish i love cabbage and to join it with garlic makes all the difference


this dish can be made two ways , it can be made in a white sauce were you use onion or a red sauce were you use garlic ... tonight i made the red sauce




1 head of cabbage

mince meat


small amount of rice


peper, salt, cumin, carwia

2 eggs

a little flour

tomato puree




so i take the leaves of the cabbage one by one and place them into a pot of hot water to soften them a little

while they are being soften i put the garlic and some oil in a pot i used my pressure cooker and fry on a small flame then add spices and chickpeas

add some water and continue to cook i closed my pressure cooker and cook it for about 20 mins

while this is being done i took the leaves from the water a left them to cool while i made the mince mixture

which is mince, a handful of rice , 1 egg , and a pinch of each of the spices and mix well

then i laid out one of the cabbage leaves and placed a little of the mixture in the middle like this

the place all sides over the mixture and make into a ball and while doing this you can squeeze out the excess water , then place on a plate till you have all of the leaves done... dont worry if some of the leaves have torn and you think you cant make it ... just add another leaf over it and bring the two together



so at this stage place the other egg in a dish and mix then in another dish put some flour ... dip the ball into the flour and then the egg and put on a dish when finished fry in a little oil till they have become a little brown


i forgot to mention that you might have a little of the mince mixture over so just make balls with it and do the same as the cabbage


at this stage your chick peas should be cooked place the cabbage into the pot and close the lid and cook for another 20 /30 mins also add the tomato puree

when every thing is finishe it should look like this


now all thats left to do is enjoy... we surely did


  1. Delicious masha'Allah! We haven't had this dish in years. Why?! It looks so tasty and easy too!

  2. oh masha`allah is was really good and the kids left nothing and if you add a little meat to the sauce before adding the cabbage it makes all the difference

  3. Essalam alaikum sis! Masha'allah these look yummy! Save me a plate next time =D

  4. jazak`allah khair sis .... thats a deal ... a nice big plate

Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist

As-Salaamu Alaykum I'm Umm Hamza from  Halal Home Cooking  today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist. Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will  always  be eaten, no excuses. Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah Source : I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it d

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
