This is one of the Zaar recipes that I adopted. I hope to make this soon as it looks like a dish my family would enjoy. I’ll edit the recipe accordingly if needed.

This is fantastic. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I'm glad I gave it a try. The only thing I did differently was to leave out the cilantro b/c I didn't have any on hand. Great textures and a great recipe!
