Chicken Thareed
Today's Round the World for £4 or Less took us to Qatar with Thareed “ Thareed is a very common dish made during Ramadan as it is light on the stomach. It is basically a crispy flat bread layered with meat soup. Thareed can be made with lamb, chicken, and also with just vegetables. “

This recipe suggested that we put the Pitta bread in the bottom of a large casserole dish and pour the Thareed over them. We did as we were told, but really they we a soggy mess! Just dip them and enjoy!
