This was quite simple, very fast and delicious! I prepared the yoghurt and then forgot to serve it. The spices were great even without it. Thank you for sharing!

Delicious! I scaled this down to make lunch for one, but I'm sure my family would enjoy it as well. Loved the spice combination and the raisins. Thanks for sharing!
