Spiced Shrimp and Rice (Machbous Rubyan)

I was given buharat spice mix for Christmas. Now I'm searching for ways to use it. I haven't made this, but I will. I'm a bit dubious of the long cooking time for the shrimp, and the amount of liquid for the rice, but I'll let you know. I also posted a recipe for the spice mix, similar to the one I was given.

  • Heat one tablespoon of butter in a large pot over moderately high heat.
  • Add the shrimp and garlic, and stir until the shrimp JUST turn pink.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Add the remaining butter and the onion to the pot and fry gently until softened-about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the buharat and turmeric and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper and chopped herbs.
  • Bring to the boil and add the water.
  • Cover and boil over moderate heat for 5 minutes, then add the rice.
  • Bring to the boil and boil covered for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low.
  • Stir the pots contents, then place the shrimp on top of the rice, stirring them in lightly.
  • Cover the pot and cook over a very low heat for 20 minutes, stirring once half way through cooking.
  • Remove from the heat, stir, and then leave to stand, off the heat for 10 minutes.
  • Serve.

    This is very good. This recipe is from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos. I use recipe#79179, good canned plum tomatoes, sea salt, to taste, the usual amount of water I use to cook white Basmati rice which I did not soak this time because the recipe didn't say to but would recommend it for a fluffier grain, plus the rest of the ingredients. I served this dish with recipe#133169 for a nice lunch. Made for Welcome to Bahrain!
