This Kuwaiti recipe is from Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking. It is also good without the tomatoes (and some proportions adjusted).

I made this for lunch today and was very pleased with it. It came through with a lot of flavor and was made in about 15 mins. Served with whole wheat couscous it was a welcome change of pace that I will surely make again. Thanks for posting Mliss. Made for Photo Tag.
