We just love this recipe. I don't mess with it much, except that I mix the spices in bulk & just measure out of the container each time (that's how popular this recipe is). It's a great primer for "hiding" veggies! Most people have no clue how many veggies are in it & kids love it! Even my picky chicken nugget & fry guy!
I had no idea what to expect when I chose this dish. I made only two minor changes: I added some cumin as another reviewer mentioned, and I used a bit of yogurt instead of the milk. It was pretty soupy, but I do feel this recipe deserves five stars. It didn't take the 1 1/2 hours as listed. More like a total of an hour, though I did use pre-cooked chicken breast. Thanks Dasha.
This is a wonderful recipe. My husband is Moroccan and loved it! I did double the recipe and I'm glad I did. The only thing I added to the spices was Cumin. I also substituted the water and used chicken broth instead. This recipe will stay in my " to keep" folder and will make it often. Thanks!
Incredibly delicious! I followed the recipe to a T. The flavors slowly develop as you are eating it. First spoonful is "goood", second..hmmm....really good, third WOW; by the end of the first bowl you are screaming. Thank you Dasha for such a great recipe. Adopted for PAC Fall 07
I have eaten Moroccan Harira on many occasions, and it seems it is totally different from person to person. I followed this recipe exactly, as it was my first experiance making it myself. I did use cubed beef rather than chicken. Everybody LOVED it. My husband said it was the best harira he ever had, and enjoyed that it was a thick and not runny. This soup has a great texture and great blend of spices. I didnt even have problems getting rid of the leftovers, even my picky teenagers were happy to see it again! Thanks for a great recipe!
Superb! I make this quite often and this recipe was as nice as the one I usually make! A perfect blend of flavours and textures - spicy and comforting! I used chicken and some fresh chicken stock I had for the base, I left out the milk - it was delicious! I will be making this recipe again - this was a real keeper for us! Thanks Dasha for posting this. FT:-)
