This is good. I did change the shallot to sweet white onion with a tiny bit of mashed garlic. I do find shallots slightly strong. Even this was a bit strong but it went well with Mjadra - Lentils and Rice and a salad, for a basic meal. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt and a little water to thin somewhat. No nonfat yogurt. I may make this again. Made for PAC (Pick A Chef) Spring 2011.
