Molokhia ملوخيه

Molokhia is one of those things you cant explain. Its green and delicious. You serve it with chicken and its a meal that everyone loves.

1 packet of Frozen Jews Mellow chopped (Molokhia)
1 whole chicken for stock
1 table spoon of salt and pepper
1 onion peeled
2 tablespoons of ghee fat
1 teaspoon ground corriander
6 cloves of garlic mashed

First you need to prepare the stock. Add water to a pot and add salt pepper and onion. Bring to boil and add chicken. Boil and skim the fat off the top until chicken is tender and cooked. Remove chicken to the side and remove skin from chicken. Now you have prepared your chicken for the molokhia and the stock.

With the remaining stock add the frozen molokhia packet to it and simmer on low until the molokhia has disolved and mixed thorougly. Now you will add the "tusha" to the molokhia. In a small pan add your ghee and minced garlic and corriander and fry them together until its all golden and nice. Add to the molokhia. Add a generous amount of salt and pepper to molokhia and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Serve with rice and bread and chicken. You can put your chicken on top of the molokhia this is very popular in egyptian cuisine.
