  1. Put lamb pieces and water in a large pot, bring to boil and remove froth as it appears. Add the cinnamon sticks, and all whole spices. Cover and simmer over low heat for 1½ hours or until the meat becomes tender. Remove lamb pieces, put them in a bowl and set aside. Drain the stock and set aside.
  2. Cook the extra water and onion in a large sauce pan with occasional stirring for 5 mins or until water is steamed and the onions become tender. Add 2 tablespoons of the ghee (reserve 2 tablespoons) and stir for another 3 mins or until onions become golden in color.
  3. Add garlic, raisins, dingo (chickpeas), 1 tablespoon of Omani mixed spices (reserve 3 tablespoons), saffron leaves and rose water, stir for 1 min then set aside.
  4. In a large pot put 4½ cups of drained stock; add more water if stock is not enough. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee, the remaining 3 tablespoons of Omani mix spices, MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cubes and rice. Bring to boil with occasional stirring, cover and cook over low heat for 10 mins or until rice is ½ cooked, add the boiled lamb pieces on top of the rice, cover and cook on low heat again for another 10-15 mins or until rice is cooked.
  5. Serve the rice and lamb in plate topped with the onion mixture.
