Recipe by Nasseh

I got this recipe from a Mediterranean cookbook & saved it here to try later.

Cooking this in the oven produced a wonderful dish, I did some amount adjustments and used a 14-ounce can diced drained tomatoes in place of the fresh tomato as I did not have one at the time, I also added in 2 good teaspoonfuls of chili flakes and used chicken broth, I used white converted rice for this, thanks for sharing Nasseh, this was great!
