Mahshy محشي

This mahshy rice mix is that nice stuff you see rolled up in a cabbage roll, zuchinni, vegetables, vine leaves basically anything you can stuff. And it tastes great. Everyone has their own version here is the one that my family uses and alot of it is used in Egypt as well. The fresh herbs and light spices give the mombaar a really unique taste which I like to associate with Egypt. The aroma is fantastic. 
Ingredients. (Serves 5) 
2 red onions chopped and rubbed with salt and pepper
2 large tomatoes diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1/2 cup of tomato paste
1 bunch of chopped dill
1 bunch chopped parsley
1 Maggi Chicken cube
Spices: Salt, pepper, cumin, chilli powder, cinamon, ginger (around a tsp of each)
1 cup of oil.

Place all your ingredients in a dish or platter whatever is easiest for you. 

(I dont have the tomatoes pictured here but make sure you add them in)

Mix very well.

You should have something that looks like this. Now you can use this to stuff cabbage leaves, vine leaves, vegetables, anything you like... I used Mombar which is the casing for sausages, but here instead the sausage is stuffed with spicy rice and fried until crispy.

I like to sprinkle some chilli salt and pepper when its done.
