  • 1

    Place chicken drumsticks in a saucepan, add enough water to cover them and simmer until completely cooked. Drain the chicken stock, shred the chicken and set aside.

  • 2

    Butter a 9-inch bundt pan and place a few blanched almonds on the bottom, per your desired pattern, then put pan into fridge.

  • 3

    For the stuffing, heat butter in a large pan, then add pine nuts and almonds and stir for a minute until lightly browned. Add washed and drained rice to pan and stir until it starts to stick together.

  • 4

    Add shredded chicken, salt, black pepper, red pepper, spices, currants, chicken stock and hot water into the pan. Mix well and keep the lid closed while cooking on a low heat until the water is wholly absorbed, then remove pan from heat.

  • 5

    Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • 6

    For the dough, mix the eggs, oil, yogurt and salt in a bowl.

  • 7

    Add the flour slowly and knead until you have a soft dough that does not stick to the hand.

  • 8

    On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to ⅛-inch thick in size - enough to cover the bottom and sides of a 9-inch-deep pan. Place the dough into the pan and fill with the stuffing.

  • 9

    Close the dough on the top and cut off the excess if necessary.

  • 10

    Bake for ~30 mins at 400°F until browned. Let cool for ~10-15 mins at room temperature, then turn upside down onto a serving plate.
