Lamb and Goat Meat Mandi RIce

Lamb and Goat Mandi Rice Recipe. Mandi rice  or Mandhi rice, also known as Haneeth, is the traditional spicy rice dish that very popular in the rest of the Arabian Peninsula and in many other Arab countries, such as Egypt and Syria. The word mandi comes from the Arabic word nada, meaning dew and reflects the moist ‘dewy’ texture of the meat. You may notice why i’m using lmab and also goat in the mandi rice, here’s the reason; i like gamey food and my sisters and my mother didn’t, eversince the junvenile lamb shoulder meat thet i’m using for this mandy rice recipe is too mild for my taste, i add some junvenile goat ribs too to balanced the gamey flavour. I guess this lamb and goat meat mandi rice is some sort of win- win situation.

Basic spice for the mandi rice is usualy same with the roasted goat or lamb, homemade mandi rice spice mix consist green cardamon, black peppercorn, cloves, bay leaves and dried ginger powder. Eversince i’m too lazy to gather all this things and blended just for one portion, i prefer using  my Homemade Garam Masala spice mix and add few sliced of fresh ginger. Saffron is one of the most important part of lamb and mandi rice, this pricey spice made boring rice dish to the next level of taste, color, flavour and aromas, but if you can’t find saffron for making lamb and goat mandy rice, you can use turmeric powder instead.

Homemade Spicy Roasted Lamb and Goat Meat Served Over Saffron Infused Basmati Rice

My homemade lamb and goat meat mandi rice is much more appliedable in regular kicthen. If you wanted too, you can dig some hole in the ground for making the authentic version of mandi rice, considered it as a work out; but i guess i had a busy clinical days lately and i’m just too lazy for that. I made oven roasted lamb and goat meat for the mandhi rice, just made sure you had a sufficient alumunium foil to wrap the baking pan. The dripping from roasting the lamb and goat used to cook the basmati rice. Right after the seasoned basmati rice nearlycooked through, the roasted lamb and goat meat placed over the rice and then all of it steamed until the rice is cooked throught. This steps sounds quite an effort, but trust me, it worthed and beside it’s much more simple then the authentic version thou

  1. This sounds wonderful Dedy. I have wanted to try goat for a long while now. My husband eats it when he is away on business in Nigeria and Kenya.
    Have a super weekend.
    🙂 Mandy

  2. I think this dish turned out well! It looks like an expensive dish to make. I think yummy rice dishes is one of the harder ones to make, or cook them in a way so people will like them. Everyone knows fried rice. My favourite rice dish is paella, but I will try your mandi rice any day 🙂

  3. A superb rice dish, Dedy! I love lamb but never tasted goat’s meat before, I must change that! Your final dish looks amazing & must taste wonderful too! 🙂

  4. I lived in Saudi until I was 6 yrs old and this mandi was present at every special occasion. I’m not a fan of lamb or goat so I rarely use it for cooking, but my family eats both quite happily. You did a great job with this, Dedy!

  5. I love lamb but haven’t had much goat, probably because I don’t see it often here. I love the seasoning you used in this dish and that rice is a great finish!

  6. Beautiful dish! You are really making some lovely dishes despite your busy clinical schedule. I love lamb and the lovely spices in this dish. I don’t think I will be digging a hole in the ground to make this dish either but your idea for steaming it is a great idea. Have a super weekend. BAM

  7. Great job Dedy! I love lamb and all of the complex spices going on. Thanks for the back story on the mandi rice. The ingredients make this dish very special. Worth every penny!

  8. Our ground is still frozen so I won’t be digging any holes to prepare this. I’ll give this dish a try with just lamb as I’ve never seen goat at our markets. 🙂

  9. I love this mandi rice dish so much Dedy, and I think most Middle Eastern and Indian rice dish are some of the best rice dishes ever created 🙂 And thank you so much for referring to my acar recipe. ♥

  10. I tried this dish when living in Egypt, but your recipe is much more sophisticated with the aromatic Basmati rice.
    I would love to eat this right now, it looks so good!

  11. This is a lovely dish and I really admire how patiently you made it. I love rice based dishes and so I think, this one is really a keeper!
