Stuffed Artichokes with Rice - Ardi Shawki w Riz

6 Artichokes 

1 tablespoon butter or ghee
1 small onion 
300 g minced meat (lamb)
30 g pine  seeds
1 teaspoon all spice
1 / 2 teaspoon salt

Peel and clean the artichokes and empty from the center and soak in water and lemon juice so as not to oxidize. Fry pine seeds in butter or ghee until tan and add the minced meat then  the chopped onion , stir until tender. When the meat filling is ready pull out the artichoke from  the water and stuff the minced meat inside the artichokes. Place artichokes in a pressure cooker and add ½ cup water, salt and one teaspoon butter or ghee.
If you dont have a pressure cooker leave it more than half an hour in the pot.

Eat with steamed rice with vermicelli. Squeeze lemon juice when eating.
