I just took this out of the oven no more than 5 minutes ago, and the house smells wonderful. I am eating a thick slice slathered with butter right now, and I am loving it. I will definitely use this recipe again.
This is a fusion of Middle Eastern and South Asian tastes. You haven't lived till you've tried it. It goes good as veggie or naan or pita bread dip, or even in spoonfuls straight from the bowl. We like this recipe so much we have to triple it to make sure it isn't all eaten right after being put out.
Cooked leftover chicken can be tossed into this gumbo and simmered with tomatoes, mushrooms, chile peppers, a little of this and a little of that. Delicious chicken gumbo consistency with tomato base. Makes plenty to last for several days. Serve over hot cooked rice and sprinkle with filet powder, if desired.
