Yes, these are the all-time-favourite baked potatoes which are spiced with the traditional baharat powder to let the recipe find place in this book. Spinach is not added in the original baked potatoes, but here it imparts a flavour liked by the Lebanese thus it is included.

A good Borek recipe! Very Lebanese with all the cheese and cream, indeed! The baharak was very hard to find in Indian markets! But I'm happy I did! Good dish!
