What is the difference among Kabsa, Machboos and Mandi?

One Pot Chicken Kabsa

Essentially they are all the equal. Kabsa, considered because the country wide dish of Saudi Arabia is a rice and meat dish served with fried raisins and almonds at the side of yoghurt sauce and inexperienced salads for the side. The name is derived from the word kabs, meaning "press" that is the technique used in cooking Kabsa. The versions of Saudi Kabsah are famous within the neighbouring Gulf States of the Arabian peninsula together with Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait as Machboos, which means "to be engaged". Mandi is likewise a rice and meat dish originating from Yemen and method "dew" referring to the smooth meat cooked in tandoor oven above the pot of rice. The three rice dish has its own spice mixture - Kabsa spice mix, Baharat or Bezar and for Mandi it is Hawajj. Another definite difference I noticed is Kabsah has a few shredded carrot which isn't commonly observed in machboos and mandi.

NOTES:

  • I have used some whole spices like cardamom, cloves and cinnamon but you can use them in powder form and add them to the chicken along with other spice powders. If using powder form, then use 1/4 teaspoon of each.
  • *allspice is not garam masala. You may use nutmeg powder instead or skip it. You may skip all the spice powders I have used and use store-bought kabsa spice mix instead. Use 2 teaspoons of kabsa spice mix for this recipe.
  • You may add some orange zest or rinds along with shredded carrots for a different flavour
