Mach'boos recipe : a collaboration with IngredientMatcher

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Karl Soderman the founder of IngredientMatcher a new app that shows recipes from around the world with ingredients you have at home.  They wanted a recipe for a national dish to represent my country Kuwait. We agreed on Mach'boos. Which is a popular dish here in Kuwait made traditionally with lamb cubes, basmati rice split peas and golden raisins.

Honey Sweetened Greek Yogurt with Saffron and Pistachios

Some couples fight about money, kids, and other important life issues, we fight about food!

It's usually a back and forth argument deciding what to have for breakfast or what restaurant to go to on the weekend.

I like the all in one approach for breakfast; smoothies, muffins porridge and the like. He likes to have a table spread with all kinds of cheeses, bread and condiments.
