    UmmBinat's Note:

    A definite 5 stars. This is very good. I sometimes add okra (bamia). I serve it with Traditional Bahraini Muhammar - Sweet Rice Dish and a fresh salad for a great meal masha Allah. Modified from the Gulf States section of The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos.

      This has been a regular in my house for quite some time mashaAllaah. DH LOVES this!!! I'm making it right now, but this time I added about a teaspoon of your iraqi curry powder (#442889) along with the other spices. It smells a-maz-ing! I can't wait until dinner!

      Made with chicken breasts and canned okra because I can't find frozen ones here. As the canned okras are already short to puree I only added them one minute before serving to heat them. Thanks for posting an excellent dish in which I could use my dried limes :) Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
