      Delicious! I didn't have any nigella seeds, so I subbed a small onion and added more cumin and mustard seed. I also used a whole can of garbanzos and less of the peppers for our taste. I halved the water, did not cover it, did mash up the potatoes and it did indeed get thick. Note: the oil and mint are missing from the ingredient list. I used a half tablespoon of oil and subbed cilantro due to an allergy. The flavor in this dish is great!

      I had to leave out the fennel & nigella seeds when making because I didn't have any. I did add in 1/2 tsp of onion powder & 1/2 tsp of sesame seeds & a dash of ginger. It never really thickened up so I also had to add in a tbsp of corn starch. DH thought it tasted very good. Made for Ramadan Tag
