"Delicious!! I used small green lentils (Eston) they do lose their shape a bit but it is what I had on hand, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, a little allspice instead of nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants, 6 whole cardamom pods bruised, Iranian saffron which is superior to any other, mainly yellow raisins and some dark Thompson raisins for variety, Parnoosh Iranian dates which are soft, I think slightly harder dates would work better, yellow fleshed potato out of preference, unsalted butter, plus the rest. I served it as a vegetarian meal with recipe#310556. I would make this again. Made for Spring 2011 PAC Pick A Chef."
