Madhbi @Mandilicious

20140504_215704

Mandi and Madhbi are traditional Arabian rice dishes slow cooked with meat. I have often seen restaurant boards selling Mandi in some parts of Dubai. Although I was always curious to taste it I never got around to doing it until at a weekend outing at Lamcy Plaza’s food court where I saw Mandilicious. Surprised I went to inquire and came back with two hot plates of Madhbi and Mandi. The difference between Mandi and Madhbi I was told was that the chicken in Madhbi is grilled and not baked like its done for Mandi. The rice was soft and flavourful, the chicken succulent and tender. The portions are quite large for one person. Since that visit we have gone back several times for quick takeaways of Mandi. Traditionally mandi was cooked in a hole dug in the desert. It is also eaten with hands on floor seatings. So, Mandilicious does a great job of bringing this conventional cuisine in a fast food setting.
