I felt this was a really fantastic meal. I have cooked it to taste however, and only used two onions rather than all four (was two large onionjs though!). I alss used vittoria tomatoes (all i had left in the fridge), but this meal was absolutely brilliant and tasted very close to how it is in the restaurant<br/><br/>Thank you very much for this recipe!!! would definitely recommend
I used to live in san diego CA where there was an amazing georgian restaurant. I tried this recipe because I really miss that place. I was very pleased with the result. I love the herbs. It's like a herb parade in my mouth :) Thank you for sharing.
