2 garlic cloves, diced
6 green cardamom pods, whole
5 cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 black limes
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cardamom, ground
1 (15 ounce) can of tomato sauce
4 boiled eggs (optional)

2. Add tomato sauce and chicken bouillon. Mix well until sauce thickens, reduce heat to low-medium. Add chicken allow to sauté for a 1 minute. Rotate chicken so that it gets all of the flavors. Add water until chicken is completely covered. Bring to a full boil then reduce to low. Cook for 35 minutes covered.

5. After the chicken has cooked reserve broth for rice. In a 2-quart saucepan, add rice and enough sauce from the chicken just so that the rice is covered. Bring to a boil then immediately turn heat to low and cook covered for eight to ten minutes. Meanwhile, why the rice is cooking turn oven on high broil. Add chicken to a roasting pan and broil for five minutes or until golden.

Assalamu aliakum,

Jazaaki Allah khair for this! We (Palestinians) make kabsah too: same idea as this but not exactly the same. I want to try this way sooo badly but I don't have the black limes and I don't know where I could get them from. Are they a must?

Alaykum Salam,

You can make it just as good without the limes, they just give it a smoky flavor but I have made it without them before with perfect results.

Good luck Smile
