The Perfect Mehshi

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!
