    "In Oman, many people still eat in the traditional fashion which is also the way that the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, taught his companions. The food is arranged on a large circular plate. A mat or cloth is set on the ground and the plate of food is placed in its center. Everyone gathers around this plate and eats with his/her right hand. It is the Sunnah (i.e. example) of the Prophet, peace be upon him, to eat with the first three fingers of the right hand (i.e. the thumb, index finger, and middle finger) and to eat from what is closest, without reaching all over the plate. The meal begins by remembering the bounties of Allah, starting by mentioning the name of Allah, and ends with praising Allah "who has fed us, given us drink and made us Muslims." If the family or gathering is large, several plates will be set out. Often men will eat from one plate while women gather around a second plate. In Oman, the main meal of the day consists of rice with meat, fish or chicken and a vegetable salad. This main meal is generally served mid-day."

    It's acceptably close. It calls for ajwain but Dee put in thyme with ajwain as a sub. *I* would like to see more recipes using this spice since i have some!

    Ajwain,

    "In the kitchen, the spice has a variety of uses. It is a staple of Indian cooking and is used to add zest to salad dressings, dips, chicken, vegetables, and batter for deep-frying. Also, it is a common ingredient in chutney and curry. A pinch of the seeds in a glass of buttermilk is said to promote digestion. In some regions of the world, it is tradition to follow a meal with mukhwas — a combination of ajwain, fennel, dill, sesame, nuts, and dried coconut — to freshen the breath.

    Medicinally, ajwain appears to have unlimited uses. Oils extracted from crushed seeds are used to heal a range of illnesses from ear aches and ringworm to neuralgia and ulcers. One teaspoon of ground ajwain can be added to boiling water and used as a gargle for sore throats. A drop or two of the oil is said to relieve earaches.

    Eating one teaspoon of ground ajwain can cleanse the digestive system and stimulate the appetite. Sniffing the bitter seeds can alleviate the effects of a cold or headache. It is also said to be an aphrodisiac."

    Use it as an aphrodisiac, if nothing else lool

    I made http://therecipegroup.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/omani-chicken-kabuli-rice/ as I said with a few modifications which I will post insha Allah (God willing) when I get the time. It received complements all around. In fact it is my favorite chicken and rice dish I have tried from the Arabian Gulf. (I have tried a number).
