Emirati Recipe: Lamb Makhtoum

Ginger over at gingerAndscotch started a cooking local project you can read more about it here. A fabulous idea right! What better way to appreciate the culture where we live if we don’t at least try their dish. If I can’t speak Arabic might as well learn to cook local dish.

Even before being part of FIA I have been reading Emiratican Kitchen and have bookmarked her recipe for Chicken Makhtoum. She noted on her post that lamb would be a delicious substitute to chicken.

When I told C that we’re having a local dish for dinner he immediately inquired if I prepared an emergency backup meal in case they won’t like it. Nope I don’t have any backup and they can order take out. I already know that Little V liked the lamb dish because he was beside me all the time tasting and checking if it’s yummy or not. He liked it so much that asked for rice and sauce for snack.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. I’m loving the new look of your blog Abigail! congrats on the makeover and new domain name!

    Lovely to see a local dish being featured on your blog, and glad to see it turned out successful. I should really start trying some too – after all these years in Dubai!
