- 3 pounds of lamb breast — halal certified
- 1 onion
- ½ cup of vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon of smen (ghee) — clarified butter
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon of salt (to taste)
- ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder
- 2 teaspoons of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of ginger powder
- a large pinch of saffron
Dice the onion and mince the garlic.
Mix the spices in ½ cup of water.
Make few slits in the meat. Cover the meat with the spice mix and the garlic.
In a cooking pan, cook the meat with the vegetable oil, clarified butter, and the onion. Add 2 cups of water to the meat.
Cover the pan and let the meat cook on high heat until fully cooked (that will take approximately 1 hour). Rotate the meat from time to time in the pan so it is cooked from all sides.
Once the meat is cooked, place it in a baking pan and pour few tablespoons of the sauce on top.
Broil the meat in the oven for 5 minutes.
Pour the rest of the sauce on the meat and serve immediately.
