    ' =^..^= 'Ameera' =^..^= ''s Note:

    This is an easy and delicious Pakistani/Indian recipe that is wonderful with any kind of Pakistani/Indian or Middle Eastern bread (chapati, naan, roti, pita, and if you just can't find/make any, then even soft tortillas) or basmati rice. "Jhal Frezi" means "dry fry" so there is not a lot of sauce when this is finished. You can find most spices in the spice section at your grocery store but you can get more for the same prices at an Indian/Middle Eastern market.

      I made this for dinner tonight adding green peppers and served it with basmati rice. It was just okay...I think a little too much coriander powder. I'll make it again, but will adjust the spices according to my taste.

      I made this and had jasmine rice on the side, and my family and I woofed it down in no time! Slightly hot and spicy, it was just right for us! I served with some naan. I vouch for this one... It's good!
