Mloukhiye Recipe


I believe there are many ways to cook Mouloukiye in lebanon, and also in other Arab Countries, but my recipe is the traditional family one.


1 kilo of fresh Mloukhiye (or the frozen one if you don’t find the fresh)finely chopped
250 grams of cube meat
1 bunch of fresh coriander
7 clove of garlic
1 small onion finely chopped
salt, seven spices
1 teaspoon dried coriander
vegetable oil


Fry the meat  in  oil in the pressure cooker until it turns dark brown from all sides

Add a teaspoon of salt and another teaspoon of seven spices, cover with water and cook until it is tender, it will take about 15 minutes in the pressure cooker

In a pot heat some oil and fry the onion until golden

Add the Mloukhiye to the onion and mix for about two minutes

Put the cooked meat over the onion and Mloukhyie and put water just to cover, reduce the fire,cover the pot and let it simmer

In the meantime wash the fresh coriander and chop into very small pieces, mix it with the crushed garlic and a teaspoon of salt and the dried coriander

Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a small saucepan and fry the mixture of garlic and coriander until golden brown

Add the coriander to the Moloukhiye pot and cook for more 5 minutes

Add the lemon juice and put the fire off

Now that the Mloukhyie is ready we need to serve it.

For serving we need:

Toasted pita bread
2 small onion finely chopped
Lemon juice or red vinegar (as you desire)
Boiled chicken
Cooked rice

Serving method:

- In a plate place the toasted pita bread and break into small pieces
- Over the bread put the rice, then the Mloukhiye
- On the top place some pieces of boiled chicken
- At the end put on tablespoon of the chopped onion with lemon juice or vinegar
