    chia's Note:

    Thanks to friedel for sending me some pomegranate molasses! I am having so much fun with it, and this is a great vegetarian recipe. This really tastes better if you make it a day in advance and let the flavors blend. It can be served hot, warm, or at room temp.

      I really liked these flavors together. The pomegranate molasses gives it a nice tang. I did end up adding some liquid for fear of sticking, since I used only a tablespoon of oil. I increased the tomato paste and pomegranate molasses though, so the flavor would not be diluted. I ate the leftovers with some Indian spices and cilantro, and that was really good too.

      Loved this! I skipped the salting part! No bitterness here. I used dried chilies that I rehydrated. Love all the flavors. You are not going to believe this but I just went to get some more. Oh my it`s good cold too. It`s sweet rich and just yummy! Thanks Chia!
