Haigtese Stew

One of my fav dishes that always reminds me of home.

As all good Israeli recipes, it starts with frying onion.

After a minute, I added a tbs of them and powdered garlic. In the meantime, I chopped 4 garlic cloves.

Once it turns goldish, I add the garlic and a few seconds later,

then I add the meat! and break it into small chunks.

Then I add the spices and stir it non-stop. Literally, non-stop.

Then, I add a can of crushed tomatoes, the sugar and salt.

Continue to stir it, and in the meantime, I make plain rice.

Jasmine rice, with oil in a pot,

Before adding water and closing the lid.

Upon serving, I place the rice and pour the Hagitese on top.
