5-7 garlic cloves, diced

2-3 tablespoons butter, room temperature

2 tablespoons corn oil

1 tablespoon butter, room temperature

1 cup almonds, diced

3. Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper and baharat to taste. Mix well.

4. Add water to cover meat and cook for 30-45 minutes over low heat. Drizzle hot water along the way to prevent the pot from burning.

For rice:

1. Stir-fry vermicelli in a pot with oil over medium heat until it changes color.

2. Add the rinsed rice and butter. Fry for 1 more minute.
