Lahme bi ajeen is a delicious Lebanese
dish. It literally means "meat with dough", but a more accurate description is typically: a 5cm by 10cm rectangle
of filo pastry
topped with fried mince
, pine seeds
, some sesame seed
paste and a squeeze of lemon
There are some other variants; for example, instead of using filo pastry, use a dough not too dissimilar to pizza base, and then spread mince meat with spices. It is then put into a tannour (think woodfire oven) where it is cooked until ready.
