A Kurdish recipe of 13th century

PostAuthor: Piling » Thu Dec 05, 2013 2:42 pm

From the Book of Al Baghdadi, who gathered, in the 13th century, many recipes from Iraq and Abbasid Empire. One of them is called Kurdiyya and is a way to cook a lamb :

The way to make it is to take a suckling lamb which has been scalded (of its fleece) and washed clean. Then cut it into joints and boil it in water with a little salt and a stick of cinnamon. And then take from the pot and dry it off. Then take a quantity of fresh sesame oil and leave it in a pan of soapstone or tinned copper. When the sesame oil boils, throw on a paddle of the water in which the lamb was boiled. Then take that meat and remove it from the bones and shred it, then leave it in the pan and stir it continuously so until it stews. Then sprinkle it with dry coriander, cumin, pepper and finely ground cinnamon. Leave it with its top covered on a quiet fire to grow quiet awhile, and take it up.

There is another book, called in short Al Kitab Al Wusla, written partly by an Ayyubid prince, Ibn al Adim. In it there is mentionne a Kurdish meal with pistachio, but not still translated. So if an Arabic speaker finds it one day, it would be nice to read it on this forum.
