A few years ago, I was invited to my husband’s secondary school mate’s house for a gathering. His wife who is from Qatar cooked us a sumptuous authentic Arabic meal consisting of their local briyani which is unlike the ones that I have tasted. There was a variety of homemade sauces and dips accompanying the fragrant basmati rice. The meat was marinated with spices and was so tender and juicy. Hubs remembered the meal fondly and when @the_gastronomic_geek said she will drop by last night to gift us a set of her deliciously home cooked briyani set, hubs was literally jumping with joy.
Mama Chew was around when hubs brought the food home and she was impressed with how nicely it was presented, the fluffy and fragrant rice to the myriad of incredible sauces that come with it. We had such a wonderful dinner last night. Alhamdulilah. Even bibik who worked in SA before said it is legitimately authentic and delicious, just like the ones she had before.
It was such a huge portion that we kept half of it and continued for lunch today. It is that delicious.
Thanks for the amazing dinner @the_gastronomic_geek , we totally enjoyed it! If you are keen to order this set, pls get in touch with the amazing cook! Super talented lady who is a SAHM who loves to cook and can also bake wonderful cakes!
