Al Kabsa - Traditional Saudi Rice (& Chicken) Dish
100 mins (prep 20, cooking 80)
25 ingredients
8-10 servings
Al Khabsa / Khabsa is very traditional. It can be made with many variations - this is just one of them - I hope to post more! Use chicken for this recipe, my others have lamb instead.....I have revised the recipe as of 09/02/09, although when I cook it the amounts are correct - perhaps it's the rice I use?
