This is a really simple way to enhance any salad, rice, potatoes or meal.

Fry seeds in oil för about ten minutes on medium heat until they are golden. You need to stir frequently. When they´re done add a pinch of salt and sprinkle them hot or cold on your food. I use sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds and sesame seeds. Both young and old sees to appreciate this, because the bowl is always empty when we´ve eaten!

The food recipe is klecha is common in my country Iraq on occasions
kilo of white flour cup and half oil, a cup of liquid milk, a large spoon, vanilla and baking powder, hal,
mix the ingredients and become a dough by the hands, and then make a small dum of dough and fillthem with dates, sesame or walnuts, put in oven for 10 minutes 180°c

Thanks Adam and Rob, I enjoyed the podcast.
In fact, the last few days were my peak for eating "Indomie", as you know it is instant noodles and all you need is to put it in a container with boiled water and leave it for few minutes.
It's found in different flavors like chicken, curry, vegetables and so on.
Some people prefer to make their own one by adding or mixing some spices, ketchup, meat or small vegetable pieces, others get rid of soup as they prefer to have it like Spaghetti pasta.
To me, it tastes delicious by anyway

Hi guys
I like cooking and baking. My favorite recipe is "Fesenjon". It is not easy or maybe I don't know how to cook it very well. the recipe includes meet, walnut and pomegranate sauce!!
All of those should be boiled together. We serve it by rice. you can cook it with any meet. Maybe you like sweet dishes and add some sugar!
