SO GOOD! Wow! I too thought the raisins was an odd ingredient but they really made the dish! Prepared exactly as the recipe was written. I ate it straight; hubby had flat bread.

Absolutely brilliant recipe, the flavours and smells are just wonderful.

A real keeper, Annacia! I was expecting it to be good, but the flavours were even more wonderful than I'd thought. Raisens with tomato sounds odd, but really, all the ingredients are so harmonious. The basmati rice I served it with soaked up the juices. My only problem was that I could have made myself sick gobbling down so much of it :-) So glad I tagged this!
