Nasi Mandhy (Mandhy rice) with lamb

This next recipe is a bit of a cheat. I use the Mandhy herbs from a box – it comes with rice and necessary spices to cook it.

Of course, like all the other recipes, does not make the food any less tasty 🙂

This is the box that I use to make my Mandhy rice. It costs RM 15.90 and available from most Middle Eastern grocery store. There is a shop close to where I live that sells this



1 box Nasi Mandhy Kambing Yaman

1-1/12 kg of lamb – I use lamb chops which I buy at my local CS

2 large onions

5 cloves garlic

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

How to

Just follow the instructions written at the back of the box

Firstly, wash the rice and soak it in water for at least 20 mins

Boil the meat until nice and tender

Slice the onions and garlic and stir fry it with the packet of cinnamon/cengkeh (clove) ie the packet on the right. Fry until the onion becomes golden

Once done, fry the packet of dried condiments (photo on the left)

Once everything has turn nice and golden (bottom most photo), mix with the rice

Add around 600mls of water, 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Cook in rice cooker until rice is 3/4 done, then add the cooked meat.

Leave in rice cooker until done

Serve with the sambal cili siam (yummmy)





I was planning to take photos of the final result but unfortunately, was too busy and it all ended up in our bellies before I could take  a picture of it.
