Arabic Laham Recipe – Its a traditional full course meal from Yemen. This dish is popular in majority area of Arabian Peninsula, Egypt, and Turkey. Arabic Laham recipe can be prepared with meat (lamb or chicken), rice, and mixture of spices. The significant difference in cooking method of Arabic Laham from other meat dishes is that the meat is cooked in the tandoor. To cook Arabic Laham recipe, meat is first boiled with whole spices until tender. Basmati rice is cooked in spiced stock. Later the boiled meat is put into the 'tandoor' to roast and crisp. When the rice is done it is smoked by adding a piece of charcoal with some cooking oil spilled on top of it.
