Hi Roulla,

The blue and silver is part of a dinner service bought in Tunisia. The fish shaped plates bought in Scotland. xx

I believe it does take quite a while but I didn't cook it and am not particularly fond of it either but it was 'gift' from neighbour. Xx

You don't what you're missing TMD!
When done right and with lean cuts ofbeef, it is finger linking good!
It takes 4 to 5 hours to make but definitely worth the effort and the time.

Well it's custom not to give back the plate/dish empty so anything from fruit, cakes or some food I've made but, on the odd occasion I bake here, I'd give them a pavlova.

What ingredients is it made from?
Mloukhia is a plant much like spinach. Once dry, it is ground extremely fine. It is green and once mixed with olive oil, it turns dark green.
That is the main ingredient. Tomato paste, harissa, garlic, beef and water make up the rest of the ingredients.
Note:.
If you ate Mloukhia anywhere in the Middle East, it is not the same as Tunisian Mloukhia.
