Recipe for the Dish Known as Maghmû m (Veiled). Take shoulder of a sheep, or the base of the neck, or the membrane of its kidney, and if shoulder or membrane, cut it in pieces not too large. Wash them and put them in a pot and throw in a spoonful of good murri and two of fresh oil, stalks of fennel and citron leaves. Take five onions, cut them and put them in the pot with some salt and a little water. Carry it to the fire and when it is done, break four eggs or more over it, and throw in pepper. If you send it to the bread oven and do not cook it at home, fine. But if you cook it at home, after it has finished cooking well, fill a potsherd with live coals and put it on the mouth of the pot so that they brown what is in the pot. When what has been described has been finished, put it on a platter, dust it with fine spices, and serve it, if God wills.
