Chicken Mutabak rice


Chicken Mutabak rice

Hello my lovely readers!! Today I am here with an Arabian dish Chicken Mutabak rice. This is one of the easy version of Arabian rices.

Chicken Mutabak rice is a fragrant and lightly spiced dish from Arabia. These rice are not spicy as in hot but spicy as in fragrant.

The meat is cooked in many different ways. Here the chicken and rice are cooked together. I have also served Tandoori chicken with the rice. Rice looks gorgeous enough to become the centrepiece for any festive table.
