Ingredients Required

For the Spice Blend:

For the Chicken:

  • 4 whole chicken legs, skin on, bone-in
  • 2 tablespoons AsmitA Organic Farms’ A2 Cow Ghee
  • 1.5 teaspoons Himalayan salt (use 1 tsp if regular salt)

For the Rice:

  • 3 cups AsmitA Organic Farms kolam white rice
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons spice mix (from the spice blend)
  • 1.5 teaspoons AsmitA’s organic turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon saffron strands plus 2 tablespoons hot water (optional)
  • 3 dried limes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4.5 cups water and broth (see instructions)

For the Garnish:

Steps to prepare Yemeni Chicken Mandi

1. Hawaij Spice Blend Preparation

Toast the coriander seeds, cloves, cardamom pods, cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, and black peppercorns in a pan for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Grind them into a fine powder. Set aside 2 teaspoons of the spice mix for the rice. Use the rest for marinating the chicken with turmeric, salt, and olive oil. Allow the chicken to marinate for a few hours or overnight.

2. Crispy Golden Onions

Thinly slice the onions and fry them in AsmitA Organic Farms’ A2 Gir Cow Ghee until they turn a glorious golden brown. They won’t get super crunchy, but they’ll be irresistibly flavorful. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the onion-infused ghee for the rice.

3. Aromatic Broth Infusion

In the same pot, add the Hawaij spice blend, dried lime (pierced), and bay leaves. Toast them, then add water and bring it to a rolling boil. Place a steaming rack in the pot, carefully position the marinated chicken on it, and let it steam for a mouthwatering 50 minutes.

4. Chicken Steaming and Broiling

After steaming, give the chicken legs a final flourish by broiling them for 10 minutes to achieve a golden, irresistible crust.

5. Fragrant Saffron Rice Cooking

Bloom the saffron in hot water. Strain the broth used for steaming and measure it (1.5 cups of liquid per 1 cup of rice). To the broth, add turmeric, bloomed saffron, and salt. Add the washed and soaked rice, bring to a boil, then let it simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Allow it to stand for an additional 10 minutes.

6. Crunchy Almond-Raisin Garnish

While the rice cooks, quickly fry the slivered almonds and plump raisins in AsmitA’s Gir Cow Ghee until they exude their aromatic essence. Spoon the golden-hued rice onto a platter, lavishly garnish it with the fried onions, toasted almonds, and plump raisins. Then, regally crown it with the resplendent chicken legs.

7. Smoky Finish with Ghee

For an ethereal touch, add a small bowl with AsmitA’s ghee atop the rice. Light a piece of coal on fire, place it in the bowl, close the lid, and let it infuse its smoky essence for 4-5 minutes.

Additional Notes:

Your Yemeni Chicken Mandi is now ready to be savored and shared. Enjoy this sumptuous creation from AsmitA Organic Farms, a true culinary masterpiece!
