> Regards mishmishiya the translation I have, David Waines's, only says
"fat meat". While his worked out recipe calls for lamb, just what other
"fat meat" was available to al-Baghdadi in the 13th century? Mutton and
goat first come to mind but were there other "fat meat" available and
acceptable for use? I suggest that camel, horse, and beef are
possibilities. Of those beef would be the meat most available to us at
present. Could someone more knowledgeable than I of Islamic dietary law
and practice weigh in?
There's a pretty good write-up of Halal and Kosher dietary law
concerning meat here: http://meat.tamu.edu/kosher.html
Additionally, this page goes more in-depth concerning Halal
(http://www.central-mosque.com/fiqh/fhalal1.htm). Notice that quite a
bit of the list of Halal meats are those of game animals. Also notice
that there are some differences between Halal and Kosher (camel and
rabbit, for example).
I hope this is of benefit to you.
