Tagine Thiebou Yapp (Senegal meet Morocco)!
2 kgs of rice (preferably broken rice)
1.5 kg Lamb chops
5 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon ginger
Some peppers and Salt
1 tablespoon cube
A few chilli pepper (I skipped it, because of my kids)
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup almond
1/4 cup Saffron water
Enough water to cook your rice (follow the manufacturer instruction) – I wash the rice for 15 mins
Chop onions, garlic, black pepper, salt, chilli and ginger (in the food processor).
Heat the oil and add the mixed seasoning mixture.
Then add the meat and cook for an hour.
The meat should cook well and get a nice color.
Adjust the seasoning with the cube if necessary, do not hesitate to taste, it is important!
Once the meat is cooked, remove and set asides.
Add the rice to the pan. Mix well. You will definitely need to add some water.
Cook for 45 minutes over low heat. Rice is cooked when it is soft and fluffy
(PS: if you choose to add the almond, olives and Saffron water watch the video for when to add them)
