Welcome Elinoar. It is so great to have you hear. In what part of Israel do you live? I live Middle Eastern food. I wish we had falafal carts here like you have there. I need to drive 30 minutes for the only place I know to get falafal and they are not very good.

What are some of your favorite things to cook?

Hi there GB

if you will go to my website (founded this month) you can find a great recipe for falafel (easy too) that you can prepare at home.

I live in Givataim, 3 minutes drive from Tel Aviv. (israel is smaller then NJ , you know...:-)

basically, the best middle eastern food (to my sole opinion) are thouse of the Greek cuisine. You will find that too.

There was a family that moved into our neighborhood many years ago. They were from Haifa I believe. They only lived in the US 2 or 3 years and then moved back home, but while they were here I became very close with them. At the time I was in the 5th grade and in that grade we had to do a report on a country of our picking. I chose Israel. Part of the report was that you needed to cook a food from that country. My neighbors showed me how to make sufgonyot (sp?). They were a huge hit with the class. I will never forget that.

For those that do not know, sufgonyot are like jelly doughnuts.

recipes

and a huge hit for your belly, too, I guess............LOL


One recipe I like very much to eat is called Mafrum (see pic in

http://www.cuisinemiddleast.com/pics.html


its stuffed potato . I guess its not the recipe you know but a blend of tastes to your palate.

here's the recipe

5 huge and peeled potatoes
salt, flour , oil
2 beaten eggs
2 tomatoes slices
1 onion, sliced thin
3 cups water mixed with 1 -2 tabs tomato paste
sweet paprika

dush of cinnamon


stuffing

1 pound ground beef
1 grated onion
4 garlic cloves, chopped fine
salt and white pepper



Mix stuffing ingredients together . Slice potatoes like sandwiches, each two slices are not sliced all the way through. Stuff the inside of each "sandwich" with the stuffing. Roll each mafrum in flour and and beaten eggs. Fry potatoes lightly brown.

Put some slices in a pot. cover with onion. Cover with the fried "snadwiches". Add water mixture and cook for 20-25 minute. Toward the end of cooking sprinkle some cinnamon.



enjoy

Elinoar
