    hoda's Note:

    needless to say, this is a very popular stew in is easy,simple and delicious. it's eaten for lunch with white rice(basmati or anbar)and green salad on the is cooked with lamb meat, not beef. it is very important to note that when you boil the beans you don't get them fully cooked in order to allow them to be fully cooked in the stew itself

      4 1/2 stars. This was good I did add a loomi, black lime to the water. I also used sauce instead of crushed tomatoes. I used some sweet curry powder mainly and a little bahrat and no pepper. I could make this again.
