This is a quick and easy Shushbarak! I love to make it using dough that’s already frozen, it can either be homemade straight out of the freezer or store bought.

You can cook this end as your rice is cooking. Serve with Basmati rice or with a mix of rice and vermicelli – at home we prefer Basmati that is cooked with a teaspoon of cardamom.

I pride myself on freezing a lot, especially sauces and homemade pasta and tortellini, but when it comes to Shushbarak I like to think that I am giving back to the local community, especially when it comes to women empowerment.

At home, we buy Shusbarak from Al Karma kitchen which works under the umbrella of the Jordan River Foundation.

My husband and I have been on tours on several of their kitchens and everything from hygiene to quality is top notch and I highly recommend it.
