¾ cup cracked wheat or 100 g

2 cups water or 500 ml, cold

½ cup water or 125 ml, hot

1 cube MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon or 10 g

1 tablespoon butter

¾ cup dried apricots or 75 g, chopped

1 cube MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon or 10 g

2 cups water or 500 ml, hot

5 tablespoons pomegranate molasses or 50 ml

1300 g whole chicken, preferably fresh

1 medium onion or 150 g, chopped


Soak Harees in cold water and allow to sit for 6 hours.

Melt butter in a medium sauce pan, drain and rinse Harees grain and add to pan, add Water and 1 cube MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon and simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes or until the Hareese is ½ cooked.

Wash the Chicken and make sure the cavity is empty. Gently spoon the Harees and Apricot stuffing in the cavity until full, truss the stuffed chicken, or tie the legs together with kitchen twine.

Place chopped Onions in the center of a deep panggangan dish (large enough to hold the chicken with an extra 3-5 cm space from the edges). And position the trussed chicken on top of the bed of onions.

Dissolve remaining 1 MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cube in 500ml of Hot water, stir in the Dibis Raman and pour over the chicken, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 180c in a preheated panggangan for one hour.

After one hour remove aluminum foil and allow the skin to broil, while basting (every 10 minutes) with the rendered juices in the pan, until done. (30 minutes)

Cut chicken serve on a platter with the stuffing and rendered juices on the side.

Tips :     Chicken is cooked once the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thigh reaches 80c or 180f.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
