Mansaf

Mansaf created by lazyme

This is a dish that originated in Jordan, and comes from Classic International Recipes. It is traditionally made with lamb, but I used boneless chicken thighs.

ingredients

directions

  • Season lamb or chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large skillet brown the lamb or chicken in hot olive oil; remove, reserving oil. Add onion to the reserved oil in the skillet; cook until tender but not brown, adding more oil if necessary. Drain off the fat. Return the meat to the skillet; add the 1/2 cup of water and the stick cinnamon. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan combine the 1 cup water, uncooked rice, raisins, salt, turmeric, allspice, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
  • For the sauce: In a saucepan stir together the yogurt, milk, parsley, and flour. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more.
  • To serve, drain the meat mixture; transfer to a serving platter. Remove the stick cinnamon and discard. Stir the nuts into the rice mixture and arrange the rice mixture around the meat. Pour some of the yogurt sauce over the top. Pass the remaining sauce around the table.

    The real Mansaf doesn't look like this!

    I want to rate this 5 stars but I couldn't love the yogurt sauce, consistency wise and taste. Maybe because I boiled it by mistake. Anyway the overall taste of the whole dish was good a bit too peppery though and I cut it down somewhat.

    Yummy! This was really flavorful. I really liked the combination of spices. I think I might have cooked the rice a little too long, but it was still really good. I did add both almonds and pine nuts because I just had a tad bit of pine nuts left. Thanks breezermom for a nice dinner. Made by a fellow Unruly Under the Influence ZWT6.
