"Matbak Um Hassan" - a TV show about Emirati Food & RECIPES

 Khaleejia said: I'm delighted to share with you a TV Show about traditional Emirati Cuisine.

Modern Emirati food has been influenced by many other cuisines - Lebanon, India, other Middle Eastern countries and international food- pasta, burgers, french fries, doughnuts, soft drinks and many more. There are also a lot of Indian, Afghan, Persian, Chinese  restaurants where people order takeaway food. And of course the ever-present fast food restaurants like McDonald's, KFC, Pizza Hut, Subway and the local choice- Taza and al Farooj.

 Here is a book available on line with many Emirati recipes in English, very easy recipes.


Yet there are many families that still respect the old style traditional food and cook/buy it regularly. In the TV Show "Matbak Um Hassan" they feature the traditional dishes like Harees, Fireed, Salona, many dishes with fish and rice. This program will be also very useful to those who try to learn Gulf Arabic as the Emirati lady (Um Hassan) speaks in the local accent and uses a lot of words specific for this region .

  3. HAAL! lol. My grandmother is the only person that calls hail haal! It must be a generations thing!

    But this simplifies the cooking, especially harees. it is one of the most difficult dishes to get exactly right.

    Great find! Cant wait till Ramadan when every house sends thareed and hareed!
