    Hajar Elizabeth's Note:

    OOOOH! Will that do?! This is definitely a comfort food for me especially on a cool/cold evening warm and is teriffic for breakfast as well. We usually eat it cold for breakfast as we cannot be bothered to re-steam and it is just as lush cold/room temperature. A Moroccan home cooked classic! This recipe makes A LOT! Though it does freeze or you can split the recipe in half. No chance of either here,,,it goes! c.\2005
