Haneth is a lamb and rice Yemeni dish. This is one of the most popular dishes among wedding and other celebrations throughout the Middle East. My father in laws niece is getting married so in the Arabic culture the uncles slaughter lambs and have them prepared somewhere. This dish was prepared by some Yemeni men. I have never tasted such amazing lamb or rice in my life. This dish is amazing. The meat just falls off the bone and is as soft as butter. And of course you can not forget the boiled eggs a Saudi favorite around the rice. It taste just like a very good pot roast. The rice has some of the traditional Yemeni spaghetti noodles in it as well, but not every much. My mother in law sent us so much I have tons in the fridge and freezer.

  • I am not sure what they used. I know the rice had cloves and as far as I can taste thats about it.
