Wroud from Free to Feed Riz

We're sharing this dish in celebration of Mother's Day! A dish that is cooked most days, its a key component of a Syrian meal, which is made often by Wroud’s mum. 
  • 3 cups Short grain Rice (680gms) 
  • 25 gms Ghee (+ 10 gms ghee) 
  • 1½ cups Sharia (toasted vermicelli noodles) 
  • 5 cups Boiling Water (1.25L) 
  • 1 tsp Vegeta 
  • 1 tsp Salt 
Tip: for every cup of rice add 1.25 cups of boiling water. Don’t forget to count the sharia - it's equivalent to a cup of rice 


  1. Soak rice in boiling water, add a pinch of salt for 15 minutes, drain and rinse until water is clear In a medium saucepan, add ghee then sharia. 
  2. Stir constantly over medium heat until the sharia has turned nut brown 
  3. Add drained rice and stirfry for a few minutes 
  4. Add boiling water, vegeta and a pinch of salt 
  5. Put the lid on the saucepan and bring to the boil, once the water has evaporated, reduce heat until very low. 
  6. Steam for 15 minutes Remove from heat, add 10 gms ghee and ½ cup cold water (this helps to separate grains and make the rice “pretty”) 
  7. Place the lid back on top and cover with a couple of tea towels Let sit for 30 minutes before serving

These yoghurty, herby spiced lamb chops will work with whatever herbs you have on hand and are exactly the kind of food you'll want to be eating as we head into the warmer months. Not that you'll have any leftovers, but if you do, they're a great addition to a leafy salad for lunch the next day, particularly when we're WFH. Grilled on the barby or pan fried, they won't fall short of providing a satisfying dinner for the whole fam.

Musakhan is a traditional Palestinian chicken meal that's served from one dish, for everyone to tear of bread and sandwich the tender, spiced chicken and onions in between. With the mild weather we've been blessed with, we cooked the chicken on the barby to give the whole dish a nice, toasty flavour but cooking it in the oven will works wonderfully too!
