    This is a special occasion dish. We make this during Ramadan. My husband bases this on a version from "Great Book of Couscous". The potatoes and zucchini must be a certain size for this to work well.

      Great recipe - I tend to use a little more cinnamon but that's really the biggest difference. I love Dolma and we frequently serve it for guests. I am a big fan of dolma made with cabbage leaves which is a nice alternative and very moreish.... Rezika

      This is a winning recipe for my husband and I this Ramadan, although I did add a range of other spices your instructions, quantities of meat/veg and the size guide of the veg were just what I needed, jazakAllah Khayran

      I haven't tried this particular recipe yet, but my Algerian cousin just made this for me last night and yum yum yum is all I can say. She didn't add the chick peas and she used 1 tablespoon of Ghee in the sauce.
