Nice side dish but sometimes I add more tomatoes some frozen peas and then can eat this as an vegetarian main dish.

A wonderful side dish that dressed up some rather plain chicken. I had no tomatoes or cardamon, but there was plenty of flavor even without those.

Yummy foodee! It tasted great, yet because of a few minor changes, it had a kick to it. Thank you for posting!

This was one of the first "proper" meals I made for my boyfriend and I in our new house, and it turned out great, I was so proud. I added frozen peas like you suggested, also some other mixed frozen vegies to make it a main dish. Thanks so much for posting it, it's definitely become a favourite here.
