10 minutes to prepare without any chopping, followed by the most challenging part: practicing patience while allowing the rice to rest for another 10 minutes. This dish is an authentic celebratory delight hailing from the Middle East, serving as a magnificent centerpiece for any feast.
While its aroma might be more delicate compared to the previously shared Middle Eastern Rice (Mejadra), its flavors are still so rich that you can savor it as is. Complement it with simple roasted vegetables or a grilled fish, and you have a complete meal. For a twist, consider trying the Shredded Lamb variation, featuring slow-cooked Middle Eastern Spiced Lamb paired with Chickpea Rice Pilaf!
