Day 24 of Ramadan

Stuffed Green Peppers 

6 green peppers
180 grams (6 oz., 3/4 cup) pine nuts
4 large onions
250 grams (9 oz., 1 1/2 cup) olive oil
450 grams (1 lb., 2 1/2 cup) long-grain rice
125 grams (4 oz., 1/2 cup) currants
5 grams (1 tsp.) salt, 3 grams (1 tsp.) pepper
15 grams (1 Tbs.) sugar, water to cover
7 grams (1/2 cup) mint
4 grams (1 tsp.) allspice
lemon slices, tomato wedges
10 grams (1/2 cup) chopped flat-leaf parsley
30 milliliters (1 oz., 2 Tbs.) lemon juice

Choose medium-sized green peppers. Wash them and cut out the stems. Core with an apple-corer or paring knife. Make the stuffing by lightly frying the pine nuts and chopped unions in olive oil. Add the washed rice and cook, stirring, for five minutes. Add the currants, salt, pepper and sugar. Pour in water to about twice the depth of the other ingredients in the pot and simmer until the water is absorbed. Add mint, allspice and lemon juice. When cool, stuff each pepper loosely, as the rice will swell. Cover open end of pepper with a slice of tomato like a lid. Set the stuffed peppers in a single layer in a large pan or dish. Sprinkle with salt and sugar, drizzle a little olive oil and 250 milliliters (1 cup) of water over them and simmer very slowly until the peppers are just tender. Decorate with chopped parsley, lemon slices and tomato slices or wedges, and refrigerate. Serve cool.

Other vegetables stuffed in the same manner are tomatoes, zucchini (courgettes), eggplant (aubergines), cabbage leaves or grape leaves. Both kinds of leaves should be briefly parboiled to make them tender and flexible. site



Narrated Ibn 'Umar: Some men amongst the companions of the Prophet were shown in their dreams that the night of Qadr was in the last seven nights of ramadan. Allah's Apostle said, "It seems that all your dreams agree that (the Night of Qadr) is in the last seven nights, and whoever wants to search for it (i.e. the Night of Qadr) should search in the last seven (nights of ramadan)."  (Book #32, Hadith #232)
