de.licious. took a bit longer to cook on the electric stove, probably extra 10 minutes. made me feel like a 'kitchen goddess' :c)
Thank you for the excellent recipe. I loved it. I fixed it at Easter & my friends loved it.
i thought the coconut and poppy seeds made this a very unusual, but lively and interesting dish. i omitted the coriander powder and instead used whole coriander seeds which i ground with the other ingredients specified in step 1. this was a very good meal coupled with basmati rice.
