Middle Eastern recipes for main dishes?


The side dish I'm preparing is a light, middle eastern inspired salad with seasoned/baked pita bread and the dessert is a yogurt recipe, so I need something substantial for a main entree.
All suggestions welcome, and thanks in advance.

Moroccan Chicken

1 cn chick peas/garbanzos
3 lb chicken pieces
1 t turmeric
1/2 t cumin ground
salt
1/8 t cayenne pepper
2 T oil
1 lg onion, finely chopped
juice of 1 lemon

Dry chicken pieces with paper towels. Combine turmeric and cumin with 1 t salt and the cayenne pepper and rub into the chicken. Let stand for 15 minutes. (I use less chicken when I make this dish, sometimes I also substitute boneless breast or tenders) Heat oil in a frying pan and brown chicken pieces on all sides. Remove to a plate and add onion to pan. Fry gently until soft, add garlic and cook a few seconds. Pour onion mixture into chick peas and add chicken pieces and 1 Tablespoon of the lemon juice. Cover and simmer gently until chicken and chick peas are tender and liquid is considerably reduced. About 1/2 hour. Taste and add salt if necessary, and more lemon juice to give a pleasant tang. Remove chicken pieces carefully, place chick peas and liquid in a deep dish, put the chicken on top and garnish with lemon wedges.  (+ info)

Middle Eastern Banquet - what dishes to make?


I want to make a whole bunch of middle eastern / north east african dishes for a special family dinner, maybe like 8-10 different things, what dishes would you recommend. I love falafel and savoury rice with all the nuts/ onions etc but have no clue where to start. All i need is a list of names, and if its not an easy dish to find online the recipe would be good too. Thanks!!

salt, red pepper
olive oil
chopped parsley
slices of red bell pepper to garnish
Cook the eggplant in a hot oven or on a fork over the flame of a gas stove. When it is well cooked through and the skin is blackened, douse with cold water, peel and chop into small pieces. Mash two or three cloves of garlic to a paste with about the same volume of salt. Add eggplant, mash to a smooth consistency and blend the tahina and lemon juice to make the Arab version of this dish; omit the tahina for the Turkish version. Serve in a bowl with little olive oil on top and garnish with chopped parsley, red pepper slices and a dusting of red pepper. Serves five.

Falafal

1 medium onion, finely chopped

What is this middle eastern dish called?


I was told that a middle eastern dish called globah was really good. When I tried to research the recipe, I couldn't find it anywhere, I think I might be spelling it wrong. I know it has hummus and pita and you can get it with chicken or vegetarian. What is the correct spelling of this dish?
I found it! Its called GHALLABA
----------

1 large red onion, quartered, for roasting
8oz whole frozen green bean
4oz crinkle cut carrots
1 whole red pepper, julienned
1 small white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp 7 spice/all spice
2 stalks celery, sliced on bias
4tbsp olive oil
15oz can stewed tomatos
1 tbsp Vegeta dried broth

You're going to need a very heavy cast iron skillet as this is a stir-fry.

Part 1:
First, cut up a large red onion into quarters. Separate sections, toss in 2tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper and spread in single layer on cookie sheet. Place in 425 degree oven for at least 30mins which should lapse why preparing the following. Next, put some rice (I did white basmati, will probably do brown next time) in the rice cooker. Now down to cooking.

Part 2;
Heat the skillet on high for 5 mins until water droplets explode in the pan.
Add olive oil until it smokes, add onion, green beans and carrots and peppers.
Stir fry until beans begin to get color, add garlic, keep cooking until the garlic really begins to brown.

Grab the roasted red onion from the oven and toss into the mix.
Add 7 spice, Vegeta, then the whole can of tomatoes.
After tomatoes are heated through, squeeze lemon over all, turn off fire and serve over rice - this is also good over hummous or by itself maybe with some pita  (+ info)

Are the practices of Chiropractic and Acupuncture eastern or western medicines?


I think that they are a part of Eastern, but I can't be sure. Help?
----------

They are completely different forms of medicine which has totally different philosophies.
Acupuncture originated in china.
Chiropractic philosophy started in America by Palmer who did borrow a lot of techniques from the Osteopaths and not give him any credit (thank you Skep doc).
Having said that the osteopathic / chiropractic techniques used today have been around for thousands of years all over the world. Technique on its own don't make you anything.
Listening to someone's heart and lungs doesn't make me a doctor.
Doing orthopaedic tests doesn't make me an orthopaedic specialist
I'm not an osteopath because I do certain techniques osteopaths are famous for. I am an osteopath because i apply these techniques to osteopathic principles and philosophy.

Edit:
Why the tumbs down? Whats wrong with this answer? is this a conspiracy to ensure my reports don't get listened to? Don't worry, I don't bother doing that anymore. I leave that to my fans.  (+ info)

Do eastern europeans stereotypically have not a lot of hair?


I'm not balding, but my hair seems to be so fine, straight and there's just not a lot of it compared to, idk, my italian or jewish friends. Is this cause of my eastern/central european heritage?
----------

Every one is different. It's down to genetics and hormones. Stereotypically yes Eastern Eurpoeans are portrayed with thick hair but as with anywhere else on a percentage will have thick hair the others will have differing amounts from bald to thick.  (+ info)

Baba Ghanoush

This creamy mixture is made with smoky, fire-roasted eggplant, tahini (sesame-seed paste), lemon juice and plenty of minced garlic. Serve with warmed pita wedges or crackers.

1 large eggplant
1/4 cup tahini, plus more as needed
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, plus more as needed
Large pinch of ground cumin
Salt, to taste
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup Kalamata olives

Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill. Preheat an oven to 375°F. Prick the eggplant with a fork in several places and place on the grill rack 4 to 5 inches from the fire. Grill, turning frequently, until the skin blackens and blisters and the flesh just begins to feel soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the eggplant to a baking sheet and bake until very soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and peel off and discard the skin. Place the eggplant flesh in a bowl.

Using a fork, mash the eggplant to a paste. Add the 1/4 cup tahini, the garlic, the 1/4 cup lemon juice and the cumin and mix well. Season with salt, then taste and add more tahini and/or lemon juice, if needed.

Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and spread with the back of a spoon to form a shallow well. Drizzle the olive oil over the top and sprinkle with the parsley. Place the olives around the sides. Serve at room temperature. Serves 6.

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process until the hummus is smoothly pureed. Taste, for seasoning, and serve chilled or at room temperature with pita chips or warm pita bread.  (+ info)
