My mother may not agree, but this is the perfect Mehshi.
The pot shot is misleading. Look what comes out of this pot once it was turned over in a tray.
So what did I learn about making a perfect Mehshi today?
Lesson 1: Align the rice along the leaf so it rolls to look like a perfect cigarette.
Lesson 2: Make sure each leaf is the same size as the other.
Lesson 3: Lots of lemon - mom says at least one cup of lemon juice.
Lesson 4: Cook it on slow heat. My grandmother used to put it on coals overnight (maybe I should cook it on the fireplace).
Lesson 5: Don't over stuff the zucchini so you don't lose the taste of the zucchini.
Thank you mom for a perfect mehshi!
