Ingredients:

450 grams freekeh , cleaned well from any visible wastes, rinsed, drained, and soaked for 1 hour

1/2 kilograms beef cubes (or chicken breasts), boiled, broth preserved

1 big onion, finely chopped

1/2 tsp Black pepper

1/2 tsp white pepper

a pinch of cinnamon and allspice (بهار حلو)

some salt (keep in mind the broth has salt)

Preparation:

Drain the freekeh

Saute the onion until yellowish, add frekeh and stir

Add the spices

Cover the freekeh with chicken broth (water should be around 3-4 above the freekeh)

When the broth boils, turn heat to low and simmer until the freekeh is cooked and most of the water is gone

(you control the consistency you want, if you want it soup  like add more water while cooking)

When the freekeh is cooked, top it with the boiled beef/chicken breasts and garnish with roasted nuts
