I definitely love FOOD, My wish is to travel the world and try different cultures food!!
Since I’m from
Saudi Arabia (Middle East)
we have a VERY popular dish we make for dinner, it’s a dish were every and each house in Saudi Arabia make!!
It’s called Chicken Kabsa, it’s a 100% Saudi dish that you should try (Oh and btw we eat a lot of rice, or bread in our dishes mostly rice.)
8 cups water or 2 liters
1 kg whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium onions or 250 g, chopped
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground coriander
2 medium tomatoes or 300 g, peeled and diced
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cubes Chicken Bouillon
pinch of salt
4 cups basmati rice or 800 g, washed and drained
Put water and chicken pieces in a large pot, bring to boil and skim froth as it appears. Cover and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes or until chicken is almost cooked. Remove chicken from stock and set aside (reserve the stock).
In another large pot, heat vegetable oil and fry the cooked chicken pieces from all sides until they become golden color. Remove chicken and set it aside again.
In the same pot add onion and cook for 5 minutes or until onions become golden color. Add spices, tomatoes, tomato paste and Chicken Bouillon cubes. Stir for 2 minutes.
Add the reserved stock to the pot, the stock should be around 7 cups or 1750ml. Add more water if stock is not enough. Add rice and the fried chicken; bring to boil with occasional stirring. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked. You can add nuts if you want.
