Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe

Al Kabsa - Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe

Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe

Al Kabsa –  Origin

Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe is served mostly in Saudi Arabia,where it is commonly regarded as a national dish. Al Kabsa, though, is believed to be indigenous to Yemen and in places like Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Iraq and Kuwait this dish is very popular.

Al Kabsa – Spices Used

Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe dishes are mainly made from a mixture of spices, basmati rice, meat and vegetables. There are many kinds of Al kabsa and each kind has a uniqueness about it. Garnish can be made with nuts,lemon,egg and cilantro.The spices used in Al kabsa are black pepper, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves and nutmeg.You can add chili powder, coriander powder and cumin powder to give richness to taste according to the individual preference.The main ingredient that accompanies the spices is the meat, such as chicken, goat, lamb, camel, or sometimes beef, fish, and shrimp.

In chicken machbus,usually a whole chicken is used. For Al Kabsa – Arabian chicken biryani recipe, I prefer big pieces of chicken rather than the whole chicken. The spices, rice and meat may be augmented with almonds, pine nuts, onions and sultanas. I have done with little variations according to my taste which is something like an arabian chicken biryani recipe.

Al Kabsa – Cooking Method

Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe meat can be cooked in various ways. A popular way of preparing meat is called mandi. This is an ancient technique, whereby meat is barbecued in a deep hole in the ground that is covered while the meat cooks. Another way of preparing and serving meat for kabsa is mathbi, where seasoned meat is grilled on flat stones that are placed on top of burning embers. A third technique, madghut, involves cooking the meat in a Pressure cooker. I have followed the third method.

Al Kabsa – Arabian Chicken Biryani Recipe meat is cooked with all the spices in the pressure cooker and roasted in butter then served at the top of the rice.it is very very delicious yummy recipe,can be prepared for any special day or an occasion/party.Everyone at home will love it and enjoy!
