    Sass Smith's Note:

    In Arabic, this is called roz bil shaghria. Tasty and rich, would be great with a simple lamb or chicken dish. This is my adaptation of a Claudia Roden recipe.

      This is a terrific recipe. I added about another cup of chicken stock and three tablespoons of butter for softness and flavor. My boyfriend who is Egyptian could not get enough of it. Thanks for the recipe!!!!!
