      MOST EXCELLENT! A true comfort food dish! Don't skimp on the onions and remember to fry them until they are golden to bring out their sweetness...A lovely dish! I served it with Salad Shirazi and topped it with a nice dollop of plain yogurt...YUM YUM!!

      This was nice, not spicy of course but good. I added some cooked sweet baby peas at the end as well and served this with a yogurt salad that had sweet onion and cucumber in it. I also served a fresh salad as well. I would like to make this again for DH for something simple sometime.
