This is from today's Weekend magazine. Anardana or pomegranate seeds are something I just love cracking between my teeth and singing the famous song from the Bollywood movie, Heena, that starts like this, "Nar dana...anar dana...asa runi topi wale nal jana"...hehe...did you quite get the tune?!? It means, "O pomegranate seeds, I want to get married to the guy with the pretty cap!" hehehehe...One of my favourite songs and I love the way its done in the movie...very romantic;)

This is pretty. I garnished it with thinly sliced almonds rather than whole. We had this with an Iraqi meal. Recipes of which I will post shortly. They went very well together. I would make this again!
