    baraahnz's Note:

    This is a classic Gulf dish -- yum yum! I've adapted this recipe from a recipe booklet that came free with "Ship Madras Curry Powder" I made it the other day and my husband thought it was wonderful! Serve with a nice, colourful salad, otherwise it'll look a bit yellow yellow yellow! Next time I want to try putting whole king prawns on top to add a bit of colour!

      Great recipe....I prefer the tast of a litte ground cinnamon to the flavor of the sticks. Could chopped fresh coriander also be called cilantro? I think corinder is the seed of cilantro. Any way I made it with chopped fresh cilantro(which also makes a nice garnish) and it turned out wonderful .... especially with extra slivered almonds! This has become a regular dish in our house!

      turned out perfect. i used butter instead of ghee and still was amazing. i loved this. the only issue was that i had to wash my hair twice after making it coz the smell of all the spices caught on.

      Delicious! I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh and one cup of extra water. I also left out the almonds. It turned out perfect. I love baharat. I found some at my local Albertson's.
