  • 2 lb Lamb Breast including a few ribs
  • 2 cups Rice
  • 4 cups Water
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Seven Spices
  • lb Ground Lamb


  • Preheat oven to 300ºF (150ºC).
  • Mix the rice with the salt, spices, and ground lamb until well incorporated. Put rice in a medium sized pot and add the water.
  • Bring to a bowl, and then lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover the pot, leaving a gap for the steam to be released. Cook until all the water has evaporated and the rice is done.
  • Cut an opening between the lamb fat and meat using a very sharp knife. Create a pocket for the stuffing.
  • Once the rice is done, allow it to cool so it reaches a temperature you can work with. Stuff the lamb breast with the rice stuffing.
  • Put in a pan and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Place in the oven for an hour.
  • Raise the temperature to 450ºF and cook for an additional hour.
  • Lower the temperature to 200ºF and leave for two more hours.
  • Serve with salad and yogurt.
