This traditional Jordanian meal is made of lamb, fermented dried yogurt sauce, rice, almonds, and pine nuts. The name is derived from a term meaning "large dish" or "large tray" and holds true so that Bedouins can eat collectively standing around with their left hands behind their backs and their right in substitution for silverware. Luckily for you, guests are considered a special occasion to cook this delicious traditional meal. Also,​ one may sample the food at other special occasions like Independence Day, the end of Ramadan, and other social​ events.
