Mofatah Al-Dajaj (Saudi Dish)

Today (September 23, 2009) The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia celebrates its 79th Anniversary
of the National Day.

So the better way for me to celebrate this occasion is by preparing an ethnic Saudi

This dish maybe unknown to non-Saudis, but certainly when you try it,you will make it
more often.

Mofatah normally prepare with lamb (you can use any meat you like), but I used chicken
this time as a change & use less oil.
