Another Dish. Take a leg of lamb, cut it small and put in the pot, throw in a spoon of murri, finely chopped onion, coriander and cilantro, pepper and a spoon of oil; put on the fire, take some lamb meat and chop finely and throw in pepper, coriander and cilantro, caraway and onion, all of this pounded, and throw into the pounded meat and add half a spoon of murri and half of oil. Make meatballs from this, and put them in the pot and throw in three scattered eggs. Take what is left of the ground meat and take gut of lamb and put the filling in it and make of this large 'usbas; pound cilantro well and break over it two eggs, and cover the pot with this and put it on the hearthstone. When it is done, dish it up and serve it, God willing.
