Flavourful very good although I did change this somewhat to use what I had on hand. As a preference I changed the thyme to dried marjoram and instead of buttermilk I substituted a little Balkan yogurt, heavy cream & bit of lemon juice in the cream first for a couple minutes. I used garlic salt as that is what I had and omitted the salt. I would make this again using marjoram. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
