We always used to order Kabsa from the restaurants when we used to visit Jeddah or Mecca for Umrah. And i loved it sooooo much, the flavourful rice, the grilled chicken. It was soo delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll surely try it out

Well, can i request a recipe?
I also used to have a dish named 'Maqdood' when i used to visit Saudi. It was Rice and raisins, and some kind of grilled chicken. We had heard that rice was cooked in milk for this dish., If you know about this dish, and recipe to prepare it, please share it..

Thanks :-)

I just joined this blog site. Am so glad I came across your blog (I was looking for the home made zaatar recipe)! :) We are leaving Saudi next month and I was feeling so sad. My husband especially enjoys Saudi/ Arabic food. I can now look at your blog to make these recipes myself. I hope to pick up some typical spices from here before I leave. I do hope you are still blogging! Thanks again.
