أرز المندي هو طبق شهير باليمن وخاصة بمدينة حضرموت ومعنى كلمة مندي أن اللحم يُطهى بالدهن وينزل هذا الدهن على الأرز الذي يكون أسفله ويكون هذا في فرن خاص بالمندي يتم إشعاله بالفحم ويكون الأرز بإناء في الأسفل وفوقه اللحم كما بالصورة.

الطبق مكون من الأرز البسمتي واللحم أياً كان نوعه سواء دجاج أو لحم ضأن.. إلخ، اليوم سأقدم لكم أرز المندي بالدجاج اللذيذ وصدقوني إذا كان هناك أي طبق من وصفاتي يجب أن تجربوه فهو هذا الطبق، حقاً غاية في اللذة والطيبة أحببته أنا وزوجي كثيراً من أول مرة قمت بإعداده ولم نستطيع التوقف عن الأكل إلى أن امتلأنا منه :) .
لكي يتم عمل هذا الطبق في المنزل (بدون الفرن الخاص) برائحة الفحم الخاصة به يقوم البعض بوضع الأرز في إناء وفوقه طبقة من ورق الفويل المثقوب وفوقها اللحم أو الدجاج مع الفحم ثم يغطيه بطبقة أخرى من ورق الفويل، في الحقيقة لا أفضل استخدام الفويل كثيراً خاصة إذا احتوى الطبق على الطماطم فهو غير صحي لأنها تتفاعل مع الألومنيوم، لذا سأقدم لكم الطبق اليوم بطريقة لذيذة دون استخدام ورق الفويل، أتمنى منكم أن تجربوه وثقوا أنه سيعجبكم إن شاء الله :)

Mandy rice is a famous dish in Yemen specially Hadramawt or Hadhramaut city, "Mandy" means cooked with the sauce and fat that comes down from meat to the rice underneath it in the special Mandy oven in the photo above.
This dish contains basmati rice and any kind of meat like chicken or lamb ...etc, I'm going to give you today the recipe for delicious chicken Mandy rice and believe me if there is any dish in my recipes that you have to try it should be this one, it's really yummy and so good, my husband and I loved it once I made it for the first time and couldn't stop eating it till we became so full :D.
To make this dish with its special coal smell at home (without the special oven) some people cook the rice in a pan covered with foil and make small hales in it and top it with the meat and burning coal and cover them all again with foil, actually I don't like using foil specially if I'm adding tomatoes in the recipe as it makes some unhealthy reaction to the food, so I'm going to make this dish with the same taste and smell without using foil, I hope you try it I'm sure you're going to like it :) .

Recipe Serves: 2 people
Prep. Time: 10 min.

المقادير:
نصف دجاجة نظيفة جافة
1 1/2 كوب أرز بسمتي، مغسول ومصفى
5 كوب ماء
5 ملعقة طعام زيت زيتون
2 قرن فلفل أخضر حار
1 ثمرة بصل حمراء كبيرة مقطعة 
2 ثمرة طماطم مقطعة
2 ثمرة جزر مبشورة
2 ورق غار
3 حب هيل (حبهان)
5 قرنفل
1/2 ملعقة طعام كركم
1/4 ملعقة طعام زنجبيل
1/4 ملعقة شاي قرفة مطحونة
رشة كمون
رشة كزبرة مطحونة
ملح وفلفل حسب الرغبة
2 ملعقة طعام عصير ليمون
قطعة فحم وبعض الزيت

الطريقة:
1- نحضر الدجاج، نضيف البصل إلى صينية على نار متوسطة مع 3 ملعقة طعام زيت زيتون ونقلب دقيقة ثم نضيف الجزر المبشور ونقلب إلى أن يصبح البصل شفاف.



2- نضيف الطماطم وقرن فلفل حار والزنجبيل والقرفة و3 حبات قرنفل والكمون والكزبرة والكركم و2 حبة هيل (حبهان) وورق الغار (اللوري) ونقلب.


3- ندهن الدجاجة بعصير الليمون ونتبلها بنفس التوابل المضافة للبصل والجزر ثم نضعها بالصينية ونضيف 2  كوب ماء ونغطيها على حرارة عالية لتغلي ثم نهدئ الحرارة إلى متوسطة لمدة 45 إلى 60 دقيقة لتنضج.


4- نقوم بتجهيز الأرز بوضع إناء به 3 كوب ماء وملح حسب المذاق المرغوب وفلفل أسود و2 حبة قرنفل (مسمار) وحبة هيل (حبهان) وقرن فلفل وكركم و2 ملعقة طعام زيت الزيتون وندعه يغلي على حرارة عالية ثم نضيف الأرز ونقلب وعندما يغلي نغطيه ونهدئ الحرارة لهادئة لينضج مدة 15 إلى 20 دقيقة، (يمكن في هذه الخطوة إضافة قطعة مشتعلة من الفحم بداخل إناء صغير يتحمل للحرارة داخل إناء الأرز وتغطيته لإعطاء طعم أقوى).



5- نجهز قطعة مشتعلة من الفحم (نشعلها على عين البوتاجاز) وطبق صغير به نغلفه بورق الفويل ونضع فيه بعض الزيت ثم نضعه بالفرن.



6- بعد أن يجهز الدجاج والأرز نخرج الدجاجة من الصينية بحرص ثم نضيف الأرز للصينية ونقلبه مع صوص الدجاج ثم نضيف الدجاج فوق الأرز ثم نشعل شواية الفرن ونضعه في الفرن ليأخذ الدجاج لون جيد على حرارة متوسطة لهادئة، ثم نضع قطعة الفحم بالطبق الموجود داخل الفرن وبه زيت ونغلق الفرن فوراً، ونترك الصينية لمدة عشر دقائق تقريباً أو إلى أن يأخذ الدجاج لون ذهبي جميل ويأخذ المندي رائحة الفحم.

  13. Abdul Hadi, it is! You can make it just like the recipe but instead of putting in the oven,after adding the rice to the chicken, place the small bowl with the coal in the middle of the tray and cover with aluminium foil, then let cook on low heat for 10 minutes, if you like the chicken to be crispy just place 2 table spoons of oil or purified butter in a pan over medium heat then fry the chicken, and bon appétit

    1. Haven't tried it so can't answer that part! Still I assure you this is super delicious! the tomato sauce has a variety of recipes, the simplest is to blend tomatoes with garlic, vinegar, bell pepper or chili green pepper, and salt & spice. (All raw)

  17. can you provide me recipe for lamb mandy? i try to find it but i failed... thank you...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Follow the same steps here uaing lamb instead and make some cuts to rub with spice to absorbe more flavor if using a whole leg or so or use smaller cuts. The real mandy uses the same oven in the photo above, to make something like it you can get a very large pot like in restaurants and put coal in it then another smaller pot with rice and same spice and water to cook rice, put it on the hot coal inside the larger pot, and place a wire rack on top of that with the lamb and cover all till cooked, it will take longer than chicken to cook. Hope I made it clear!

    1. Thank you Haifa :)
      You mean cook the rice with the chicken? The rice would be overcooked then! If you mean after removing the chicken, yes sure! I just eanted it to be ready while the chicken is getting cooked so once it's ready, I add the rice and put together in the oven, but you're free to do what you like! :)

  21. I like to eat Mandy Rice at Saba' Restaurant in Malaysia. I've been told that recipe is from Yaman. Is your recipe similar to that? Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Definitely will try it soon.

    1. Thank you Effa for stopping by! :)
      My recipe is very close to the original one, in the original recipe using the Mandi oven, the chicken is cooked from the steam that comes up from the rice, so it's more like steamed chicken, the flavor in the chicken then could be less than my recipe here, because I'm cooking the chicken with the spice and vegetables in a tray full of flavors. To make something like the original one you can use a wire rack over the rice placed in oven pan and place the chicken on top of ithe rack after you rub the chicken with spice, cover with foil and cook in the oven, but it will take more time (about 2 hours or more), and I don't think it will be as delicious as this one here ;) try both and tell me what you like the most! :)

  23. Hi Julia, this looks delicious thank you for posting and the best thing is that you added pictures as well. very helpful :D
    your recipe is for 2 persons if i want to make it for 4 or 5 persons do i just double the ingredients or would that alter the whole recipe?

    1. Hi there,
      Thank you! I'm glad I helped!
      You can doubles the ingredients except cardamom and bay leaves, they have strong aroma, and the rice used here for is 1 1/2 cup depending on the people eating, only if they are starving and that's the only dish to eat (no desserts no soup) , if not, you can use 1 cup instead, and double with 2! Hope that was clear :)
