Ramadan 1433: Saudi Arabia

Their second Muslim country to research is Saudi Arabia. This is what they came up with.

Saudi Arabia PPT Presentation

H said the glue gun was not working, so he didn’t come up with any architectural model for this one. The girls made mtabaq though, which fascinates me because I always wondered about the origins of the Malaysian murtabak. Maybe the Saudis took it from us! 🙂

The difference between their Mtabaq and our Murtabak is the dough and the filling. We only use ground beef cooked and seasoned. They also add chopped boiled eggs and cheese cubes. As for the dough, theirs is a simpler one, while ours is one that we use to make Roti Canai with. We also eat it with either a vinegar based sauce or curry. I think the girls did a good job with the Mtabaq mashaAllah. They got the recipe from Arabic Bites, which I had discovered a while ago and love.

The filling : ground beef, chopped boiled eggs, cheese cubes

Wrapping the dough up to form a square

They made it pretty thick compared to the recipe they’re following, but it’s good either way, alhamdulillah

Cooking the mtabaq

The kids did this all by themselves. I was too busy taking notes from Tafseer Maryam

All ready for Iftar, which was at this time, a good few hours away
