  3. Drain the shrimp and reserve the shrimp broth for later. Peel the black thread from the shrimp and leave in a strainer.
  4. To prepare the stuffing: Start by crushing the garlic cloves with the ginger and green peppers, and leave aside.
  5. In a medium saucepan, roast the chopped onions and the dried black lime powder until onions are tender and brown. Sprinkle some water if onions stick to the pan.
  6. Add the crushed garlic mix and the rest of the stuffing ingredients:baharat, salt, cardamom powder, turmeric, vegetable oil and coriander. Mix for a few minutes before adding the shrimp to the stuffing then stir for 3 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle a little bit of the rosewater-saffron mix. Cover and simmer for a few minutes, and then remove from heat.
  8. To prepare the rice: In a large saucepan put the reserved shrimp-broth along with some boiled water to make a total of 6 cups of liquid. Then add in the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick, black peppers, and cloves. Bring to a boil and add salt to taste.
  9. Add the rice and stir for a few seconds to prevent from sticking. Boil until rice is half-cooked, then drain and place back into the same saucepan.
