So in recent months, there hasn't been much interaction with #shayansglobalcooking Challenge. This is mainly becuase there hasn't been a vote.
O only had one country; OMAN and now Q has the same issue; Qatar.
Your loss is my gain and I got to make this dish in peace for my wife and I to savour.
For this dish, I went to the friendly neighbourhood search engine to find the recipe. Once found, I went to my task.
I was ably assisted for this episode of the challenge by the Nation Plates website: https://nationplates.net/2014/08/11/qatar-machboos/
I followed this recipe almost word for almost word, with all ingredients except for ghee. Thank you again Nation plates.
I was asked whilst cooking this dish, what my fave type of cooking is. to be honest I am not entirely sure. For this recipe, having to let things simmer for an hour was at times tedious but the end result was where the reward was at.
Also, for the Machboos, preparation was key and very convienient too. Having the veg, spices, herbs or chopped up and ready beforehand made it very easy to follow the recipe.
A tasty dish. Think of this as the Qatari Biryani, chicken and rice infused with stock and spices and a very easy dish to consume. Some yoghurt on the side goes really well with this dish or a side salad too.
Qatar, thank you for a lovely well rounded dish.
