I received this recipe from a co-worker. She loves it. I haven't tried it yet. The ingredients seem interesting. She says it has a wonderful aroma and sweet flavor. A written quote from her "This is a great one, very "comfy" on a cold morning or afternoon!"

- 16 cups vegetable broth (can mix) or 16 cups coconut milk (can mix)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄4 cup rose water or 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 2 cups raisins (can mix) or 2 cups dates (can mix)
- 1 cup almonds, chopped
- 1 cup green pistachios, chopped

YUMM!!! Wow! This is good!
This really was an aromatic dish, and sweet too. I halved this recipe and it still gave alot to feed for my family. I like having raisins in this dish, and it was very filling in the end.
