How to make Arabic Mutabbaq

  1. Knead a soft dough and keep it aside for 15 mins.
  2. Make 15 equal sized small balls out of the dough.
  3. Roll them as thin as possible.
  4. Cook them a little on both the sides without oil just for a minute or so.
  5. Meanwhile saute the onions in oil.
  6. Add the masalas and the mince.
  7. Simmer on medium flame until done.
  8. Chicken mince is done in about 15 mins. But the mutton mince takes a little longer time.
  9. Add the scrambled eggs cooked in a separate pan into this mince.
  10. Garnish with coriander or parsley
  11. Spread about a tbsp of mayonnaise on the rotis first.
  12. Put about 2 to 3 tbsp of the mince and egg filling on it and fold it in a square shape.
  13. Seal the edges with any slurry or simple beaten egg with little salt.
  14. Cook on low heat in a pan or a skillet with butter for great taste and texture.
  15. Flip it over and cook on the other side too until light golden brown in colour.

My Tip:

You can use ready made spring roll sheets or rumali roti for the wraps.
