Some traditional Lebanese stews tend to have the simplest of ingredients yet the loveliest of flavors, as well as loads of vitamins and fibers. A literal English translation of the Arabic word Makhlouta is “mixed”, referring to the mix of 7 types of whole grains that go in it.
7 types of whole grains:
Weat, Lentils, Hommus, White beans (fasoliya bayda), Red beans (fasoliya hamra), Big beans (fasoliya aarida) and Fava beans.
Weight: 1 kg
This recipe is for almost 4 Portions (plates).
How to cook Makhlouta:
Separate the whole grains & make sure there isn't any grass between them.
Put all the beans in a big bowl & soak in water for one day
Drain the grains from water and put them in a pot over warm water until they start getting cooked
Then add Salt (as needed), the Mixture of spices provided with the grains & a mixture of fried onions. Rice could be added as well.
Mix them all together
If some of the water evaporated, add only until it becomes 1 cm above the mixture & close the pot.
After a couple of minutes on medium fire, lessen the fire and leave the pot closed for 15 minutes!
