Shaped and prepared like ghughras, the Spinach and Cheese Sambousek is a famous Lebanese dish that features a plain flour shell containing a succulent spinach and cheese mixture. We have used crumbled feta cheese as it gives the most authentic flavour and texture to this dish.
The spinach and cheese mixture is perked up with chopped onions, garlic and aromatic Baharat powder, an exquisite Lebanese spice powder that has the sharp flavour of pepper and red chillies along with other spices like cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. Roasted and chopped walnuts added to the stuffing increase the appeal of this dish. Serve the Lebanese Spinach and Cheese Ghughras hot and fresh to enjoy the crispness of the shell along with the soft, crumbly consistency of the stuffing.
