#mandilamb — #mandi (Arabic: المندي) is a traditional dish from Yemen of meat, rice and spices. It’s also very popular in other Arab nations and Turkey. The word "mandi" comes from the Arabic word nada, meaning "dew", and reflects the moist 'dewy' texture of the meat. Mandi is usually made from rice, meat (#lamb or chicken), and a mixture of spices. The meat used is usually a young and small sized lamb to enhance the taste further. The main thing which differentiates Mandi from other meat dishes is that the meat is cooked in the tandoor (taboon in Arabic), which is a special kind of oven. The tandoor is usually a hole dug in the ground and covered inside by clay. To cook mandi, dry wood is placed in the tandoor and burned to generate a lot of heat turning into charcoal. The meat is then suspended inside the tandoor without touching the charcoal. After that, the whole tandoor is closed but an airvent is given to remove excess smoke. Raisins, pine nuts, or peanuts can be added to the rice as per one's taste. The meat is first boiled with whole spices until tender. The spiced stock is then used to cook the #basmatirice. The boiled meat is then put into the 'tandoor' to roast and crisp. When the rice is done the final part would be to smoke the rice by adding a piece or charcoal amber onto some cooking oil on a metal dish and put into the rice and cover to smoke for about 10 minutes. | #oqdalamb — #oqda (عقدة), meaning "knot" in Arabic, is a #stew made from tying and mixing all the ingredients together. There are many types of oqda, and it can be made with small pieces of lamb, chicken, or fish that is mixed and cooked together with vegetables, including tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, onions, etc. | #khubz (Arabic: خبز, Arabic: khubzun), also known as #arabicbread, is a round leavened Middle Eastern flatbread, that forms a staple of the local diet from the Arabian Peninsula to Morocco.
