that the restaurant would give us as the guests the first taste after which the entire staff of about 20 who rarely get to eat any camels that they cook joined in after which the restaurant donated the rest to a non-profit charity who gives food to people in need but first we had to help with the marination process so tamarind turmeric you got cumin chili and also the local masala so those are the local spices they usually have them in a mix and there and they put them on top and we are gonna be putting a second coat of that local masala over top look at that masala we've got here guys you

this giant giant plate platter full of camel meat and you can see it's just covered with spices and that aroma coming off of this is insane and this is this is the hump right here right so we've got the hump we've got boiled eggs they put a ton of saffron and that camel meat is just wafting the masala flavor so with this kind of meal you basically there's more meat than there's rice on purpose you eat a lot more needs so basically take yourself a piece of meat so maybe so look at that and that lots of spices on it so it's customary for the host to to give the meat to the guests okay so I'll normally pick at it and put some good meat in thank you start with that few amazing get myself a piece and actually this is it this is a great piece for you to have that's from the inside is still hot and it's and it's good I'm gonna get a piece of that look at those strands look Wow super nice thick strands of meat let's get some of this rice okay and make sure you get a lot of that hash ooh so the stuffing all right I want you to get everything so the cashew nuts the split peas the raisins all of it so okay so get it all together yeah into a mound into Maya so something like this like that and then just just squeeze it into a ball or there's all those curry leaves and spices in there yeah squeeze it into a ball squeeze him to ball like that okay and then straight into the matzo oh you can see all the saffron in there yeah so get yourself maybe a little bit more rice so more rice and cashew is the rice will hold that you turn it into a bow oh look at that that's beautiful a deer pee right there and use your thumb I'm stupid but it straight into the night it's purely amazing that rice with this mixture here so we called the hassle and hasshu is basically it's the word for stuffing stuffing Wow the rice with the stuffing it's actually almost a little sweet tastes almost like there's some some berries or something in there the reason is and you've got the cashews that that nutty fattiness from the cashews all the spice the cilantro oh and when you mix it with that super tender camel meat thank you look at that and just squeeze it together that is the definition of happiness right there this is amazing no this is all tender this is good as if you had lamb like yes did right it really tastes just like almost a lamb meat you may be a bit more desert tea that you can feel it's from the desert in a way but it's absolutely tender almost like a lamb almost like a lamb yeah I think 90% of people wouldn't be able to tell that this is camel yeah versus lamb I think it's very similar to lamb tender super soft fatty it's got a bit of that that strong almost lamb like flavor yeah and Oh incredible and I have to tell you Trevor you know this meal was done in true tribal style when I called mr.
