Method

  1. Place the mutton, spices and the whole onion in a pan and cover with water.
  2. Simmer gently for 1¼ hours or more until the meat is tender.
  3. Lightly grease a large casserole dish and add the rice to it.
  4. Strain the mutton into a colander but keep the stock.
  5. Measure the stock and add enough hot water to bring it up to 1.1 litres.
  6. Pour over the rice and add the saffron, garlic and samneh or butter.
  7. Place the cooked meat on the top, cover and cook for 30 minutes at 200° C (400° F - gas 6), until the rice is cooked and has absorbed the liquid.

Serving suggestions

Serve with a plain salad and yogurt or with vegetables.

Variations

If liked, you can include some cooked chickpeas, in which case, reduce the amount of rice.

Chef's notes

The recipe may seem to require a rather large quantity of rice, but you do need it.
Whilst the mutton will be cooked at 1¼ hours it may still be a little tough, about 2 hours really did make the meat very tender.
You can also reduce the salt down to around 1tsp and it should still be nice, its a personal taste thing.
