Ar-sea-ah ~ Chicken and rice paste
A white very sticky dish, similar to cream of wheat. It is cooked with chicken until it resembles a paste, then is served covered with home-made butter. Usually prepared in the afternoons or evenings, it is very popular when women visit in the afternoon and the fou-alla is served. An ideal dish for children, even infants.
1 fresh chicken
Clean chicken and cut into small pieces, keeping the bone in. Place in a
large pot, pour in enough water to just cover and add salt. Bring to the
boil, turn heat to low and allow to simmer for 45 minutes. Remove, cool
and d-bone and skin the chicken. Measure the amount of broth left in the
pan and add enough water to make up 6 cups. Put chicken back in the
broth and add rice.
