The recipe for a successful partnership

There is a traditional Omani dish named Shuwa, reserved for very special occasions and festivities. Eid al-Fitr, a festival that marks the end of Ramadan, is one of those occasions. The Shuwa is usually made with a leg of lamb covered in a paste of spices, herbs and oil. Every Omani family have their own special blend but they usually include earthy flavors coming from cinnamon, coriander, cumin, chili powder mixed in syrup of dates vinegar. The meat and spices are then wrapped in banana leaves and tucked into a palm frond, forming a bundle. This bundle is then placed in a special Shuwa pit. A Shuwa pit is essentially a hole in the ground which is prepared with hot embers. The pit is then backfilled and the bundle remains on the embers for 24 hours.
