      I followed this receipe exactly except for the nigella seeds. My husband said he liked it, however for me it was good, but it could hav been much more spicy. I had it with salad as suggested, however next time I have it with rice.

      Yum-this was good. There is no mention of oil in the ingredients, so I used 1 tablespoon to cook my onion. I used canned garbanzos and tomatoes and thigh fillets, so it was very fast to make. I also chopped my chillies and added chopped coriander and lime juice before turning it off to stand for 5 minutes. My chillis are particularly hot, so I only used two. I will definately be making this one again as it used ingredients we always have on hand.
