VIDEO: This is one mouth-watering Lamb Machboos!
QL had the awesome opportunity to go behind the scenes at We Cafe in the Avenue Hotel to shoot the preparation of another traditional Qatari dish - the Whole Lamb Machboos.
If you have lived in Qatar for some time, you may have tasted Lamb Machboos at least once. The yummy dish, which is prepared with great care, is a true food lover’s taste of paradise.
Sometimes, an entire lamb is prepared and placed atop golden-coloured rice, seasoned with light spices and ghee. A very traditional preparation, it is the perfect food over which family members can bond and friends can catch up on old times.
There are several places in Qatar which serve the delicious fare. If you’re a fan of cooking it with your own hands, there are quite a few recipes freely available on the Internet.
So if you haven’t yet had a taste of the local Qatari cuisine, Lamb Machboos is a great starting point. Let us know if you’ve had it before or if you were inspired by this post to try it out. Happy dining!
We Cafe is the brainchild of several Qatari owners who prepare the food themselves. To check out more yummy traditional treats at We Cafe you can watch another video here.
