I had some leftover roasted leg of lamb from the day before and chopped it up to use for this recipe. I heated olive oil in a pan, added the chopped cooked lamb pieces and followed the recipe from there. It was wonderful! There were no leftovers! I will definitely make this again!
I used lean turkey meat instead of lamb and threw in some peas (as does my aunt) but kept everything else the same. It's the real deal! If I make it again with turkey, I'm increasing the spices.
This came out wonderful !!!!! My husbands family is Arabic and this came out just like theirs my favorite way to eat it is with yogurt but i also stuff veggies with it .
Definately quick and easy but not an abundance of flavour. I added peas and mint jelly. A good quick meal.
This would be very good to use as a bed of rice for another dish to sit atop. I used ground beef but I'm sure it would be just as delicious with lamb. I used olive oil rather than butter to be dairy free and basmati rice which I would say is a must. I did not add the saffron just because of what I was serving it along with, but another time I would add it. I did add the pine nuts which was a perfect addition. I added a 1/2 tsp of my Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix along with the other spices. This is a dish I would make again.
Thank you so much for this recipe!!! Having spent time in the Middle East, I am enamoured of the cuisine. I love lamb, and am always looking for another recipe for my favorite meat! Again, thank you so much for sharing........BB
