Meat and okra stew aka bamia

Lappy kena warded..
Terkial2 nk update guna ifon nih!

Cik abe kata member gym dia nak dtg beraya
Cik adik mula nak ghaplah jingga!
Takkan nak jamu kek je kot? geng gym makan kek ke?
Terlintas jugak.. Bila lagi nak cuba memasak?
Buat bihun sup ka.. Mee bandung ka.. Lontong ka..
Tapi tahap saspen + seghiau sgt tinggi!
Naiya ja kalau tak menjadi..
Malu nanti cik abeku itu..

Last resort, buat menu yg biasa buat..
I wud say this is our family menu..
Tiap kali raya mesti ada makcik yg buat
Dan ibu mertuaku sgt suka! :)
Tapi kali ni saja nak cuba resepi from egypt
Masak guna oven ;)

Adei.. tak boleh paste pulak :|
Kena tunggu masuk opis jugak..

bamia mesir made in kl 


This recipe serves four people <-- kalau makan dia saja pun boleh serve almost double!
  • Bamya (Meat and Okra Stew)
  • 2 lbs. stewing lamb or beef, cut into one-inch cubes.
  • 2 onion(s), finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground cumin <-- saya letak 1tbs
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground coriander <-- 1tbs as well
  • 1 cup(s) peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes <-- 2 biji tomato (x seeded pun!)
  • 3 tablespoon(s) tomato paste
  • 1 cup(s) stock (beef) or water, or as needed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint (optional) <-- huhu.. xde stok :(
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs. okra
  • juice of 1 lemon
Note: Okra must be cooked so that its slimy texture is eliminated. Trim the conical tops with a sharp knife, then soak the okra in for 30 minutes, allowing 1/2 cup vinegar per pound. Drain, rinse and dry the okra and proceed with the recipe. This dish is popular throughout the Middle East and can be prepared with lamb or beef. Serve with rice.

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 F (165 C)
  2. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of the butter or oil per serving.
  3. Working in batches, add the meat and fry, turning, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon transfer to a baking dish or stew pot.
  4. Add the onions to the fat remaining in the frying pan and saute over medium heat until tender and translucent, 8-10 mins.
  5. Add the garlic, cumin, coriander, tomatoes, tomato paste, the 1 cup stock and mint (if using). Stir well. Pour over the meat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Cover and bake until all the liquid is absorbed, about 1 1/2 Hrs. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the okra as directed in the note above.
  8. In a saute pan over medium heat, warm the remaining 1/2 tablespoon (per serving) of butter or oil Add the okra and saute for 3 mins, stirring gently.
  9. Remove the stew from the oven and arrange the okra on top in a spoke pattern. Sprinkle the lemon juice evenly over the surface. Re-cover the dish and return it to the oven.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes longer. Add stock or water if the mixture seems too dry.
  11. Serve the "BAMIA" stew piping hot.
