    UmmBinat's Note:

    For Welcome to Bahrain Tag Game! "Versions of this recipe are found throughout the Middle East. My mother's version is especially good and really easy to make. You can use this recipe as a base for making all types of middle eastern stews. The basic technique is to fry the meat in spices (this is an important step that many people skip as it seals the flavor of the spices), fry vegetables and onions in a seperate pan. Add water to the meat and then add the vegetables." " In Bahrain we usually use goat meat but that's difficult to find elseware" From
