Arabic Samboosak
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
11 ingredients
8 servings
This is based on a recipe from the link, which I made after attempting Saudi Samboosak for the Aussie Recipe Swap #12. At the time, the recipe I had attempted was based on a very rough Arabic translation, so chef #239758 kindly turned me onto this one. I tried this Samboosak, and would recommend serving them with a sauce such as Turkish Cacik -- if anyone knows of a more appropriate Arabic sauce, please let me know! :) I think they're quite good without a sauce, too!
