How to make it

  • Cook onions in oil in a 4-quart heavy pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Pat meat dry and toss with 1 teaspoon salt. Increase heat to high, then add meat, saffron, and turmeric to onions and cook, stirring frequently, until meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in water and tomatoes, then simmer, covered, 1 hour.
  • Stir in split peas, tomato paste, Omani lemons (if using), cinnamon, allspice, and ½ teaspoon pepper and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender, 1 to 1½ hours more. Discard Omani lemons and stir in salt and Key lime juice to taste.

    Thanks for this recipe!! Made it last night, used some preserved limes I had in the pantry and added fresh coriander at the end - simply fabulous! :D

    Thanks much for sharing the recipe. I made this with my folks two days ago and when visiting my father this afternoon, he was making a fresh batch :)
