    UmmBinat's Note:

    A yummy chicken and rice dish that I modified to my families taste by combining two Omani recipes found online plus my own taste. Chicken Kabouli (Al-Batena Style) & Traditionally ginger is added (I blame Indian influence), we don't tend to enjoy ginger in savory dishes so I omitted it. You may add some if you like.

    Serves: 6


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash white basmati rice and soak 10 to more minutes depending on quality of rice.
    2. 2
      Wash whole chicken legs keeping the skin on. Add to pot.
    3. 3
      Cover chicken pieces with water and bring to the boil skimming off the scum.
    4. 4
      Add whole spices including loomi as well as sea salt and boil for a further 40 minutes.
    5. 5
      Drain the chicken pieces keeping the chicken stock and shallow fry in a bit of light tasting extra virgin olive oil until golden brown.
    6. 6
      Fry sliced onion in the same oil until golden brown then remove half of them and keep aside for garnishing.
    7. 7
      To the remaining onions in the pan, add tomato paste and baharat spice mix then add 6 cups of the chicken stock after straining. To that add the drained rice.
    8. 8
      Bring to a boil and reduce heat and cover for 10-20 minutes depending on amount, quality and quantity. (If it's a cheaper rice it will become softer faster so do 10 minutes and take off the heat 1 minute then check if done).
    9. 9
      Drain raisins then add to a pan with a bit of oil and fry along with the almonds until toasted. Then add garnish onions & loomi powder.
    10. 10
      Put the rice on a plate and arrange chicken pieces on top, garnish with raisins, almonds and onion mixture and a few cilantro leaves if wished.
    11. 11
      I serve it with a raita (yogurt salad) or daqoos (Gulf Arabian tomato sauce).
