We cook a similar dish with ground meat and rice, there will be no veggies in it like you have added, and we call it Tahari. Well, what is Qaimar? Can you let me know about it..

Hi ladies - I tried this recipe and I really liked it!! it is a quick dish to make. I even had my lebanese in-law try it! They mentioned they make this same dish with vermicelli and rice mixed with the meat. I did increase the amount of spice, though - i used TWO tsps of the arabic spice mix.
