ASA Srs,

Insha'Allah this reaches everyone in the highest of Imaan. I love cooking and with a large family I get to do it a lot. I'm always looking for recipes that include halal products that are easy to find in the stores or time saving recipes that are really good but don't require me to spend hours over the stove as I homeschool and have a home to upkeep so I have very little free time.

I was searching and to my surprise at under the Halal and Healthy tab they have great recipes sent in to their site. I like that because they are being posted by sr's like myself. Heres the recipe I'm going to try this weekend Insha'Allah.

If anyone has any good sites or recipes please share them.

Halal & Healthy:



    2-1/2 lbs. lean lamb meat, cubed
    2 onions, chopped
    oil for frying
    2 cups rice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cardamom
    1/4 cup almonds, toasted
    1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

Brown lamb and onions over medium heat in vegetable oil, in
a large skillet. Season with salt, pepper, cinnamon and
cardamom. Adjust seasoning to taste.  Add enough hot water
to cover the lamb.  Cover pan and simmer until lamb is tender.

Drain the lamb, reserving the liquid in a measuring cup. Add
enough water to the liquid to measure three cups.  Pour liquid
into saucepan and bring to a boil.  Add the rice.  Cover pan
and reduce heat to low.  Let rice simmer for 30 minutes,
while lamb and onions are kept warm in the oven.

Mound rice on a serving platter. Top with lamb and onions,
and garnish with toasted almonds and pine nuts.
