For the lahmatzoun

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the milk, the water, the yeast, the sugar, the thyme, and whisk well using a hand whisk. You should let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes so that the yeast is activated.
  • Add the flour, salt, and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed for 5-8 minutes until there is a soft and elastic dough.
  • Put the dough into a floured bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and allow about 1 hour for the dough to double in volume.
  • Cut the dough into 6 pieces and with a rolling pin, roll it out until it has a 20 cm diameter.
  • Place a 26 cm frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and add one of the dough pieces. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side and set aside.
  • Follow the same process for the remaining dough pieces, by adding 1 teaspoon olive oil. Set aside.

For the filling

  • Place the frying pan on heat again and add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Finely chop the onion, the garlic, and add them to the pan. Season with salt, pepper, and sauté until they are caramelized.
  • Add the ground meat and sauté until golden brown.
  • Add the cumin, the fenugreek, the paprika, the chili flakes, and mix.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, and simmer at medium heat for 5-7 minutes until the moisture evaporates.
  • Set aside to cool.

To assemble
