عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ أَبِي الْبِلَادِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْوَلِيدِ بْنِ صَبِيحٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) أَيَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ تُطْعِمُ عِيَالَكَ فِي الشِّتَاءِ قُلْتُ اللَّحْمَ فَإِذَا لَمْ يَكُنِ اللَّحْمُ فَالزَّيْتَ وَ السَّمْنَ قَالَ فَمَا يَمْنَعُكَ عَنْ هَذَا الْكَرْكُورِ فَإِنَّهُ أَمْرَأُ شَيْ‏ءٍ فِي الْجَسَدِ يَعْنِي الْمُثَلَّثَةَقَالَ وَ أَخْبَرَنِي بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِنَا أَنَّ الْمُثَلَّثَةَ يُؤْخَذُ قَفِيزُ أَرُزٍّ وَ قَفِيزُ حِمَّصٍ وَ قَفِيزُ بَاقِلَّى أَوْ غَيْرِهِ مِنَ الْحُبُوبِ ثُمَّ يُرَضُّ جَمِيعاً وَ يُطْبَخُ .

1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from Yahya ibn Ibrahim ibn abu al-Balad from his father from al-Walid ibn Sabih who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once asked, ‘What do you feed your family in winter?’ I replied, ‘I feed them meat, if there is no meat then it is oil and ghee.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘What prevents you from using for food this al-Kar kur which is the most palatable for the body, that is, the tri-mixture.’ Certain persons of our people informed me that this mixture consists of one-third rice, one-third beans and one-third kidney beans or other grains, which then are mixed together and cooked.’”
