Sheikh El Mehshi translates to “The King’s Dish” reason being that it skips the rice stuffing used more commonly in the Levante region & includes the (“fancier”) pine nuts instead! It was always a joyful day when my Grandma would make this dish on while on summer vacation in Syria and this is the exact same recipe used back then, talk about nostalgia!
I’ve always loved Asian cuisine! Be it Chinese, Vietnamese or Indian – the spices used in these cuisines add a special flavor to their dishes. This dish is an all-age favorite and is somehow a fusion between Japanese and Indian food. The warm curry sauce and crispy chicken work perfectly together satisfying the taste buds of those who love to add a little spice to their meals!
This recipe has been in my family as long as I can remember! Growing up, my mom would make it for us on special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas etc. The smoothness of the chocolate and rest of the ingredients are finger licking – really makes you feel like your floating on another galaxy. One of the easiest and quickest dessert recipes to prepare – no ovens needed for this one!
