    I just used the idea tweaked to our taste in spicing and it was pretty good. I used organic white potatoes and mashed them with some organic cultured unsalted butter and additional potato water to make them creamy and added grey sea salt, a perfect salt, and freshly ground black pepper to taste, regular halal ground beef, spiced up with garlic powder and baharat Middle Eastern spice mix, & same salt. An organic onion but I suggest adding it first and cooking a little before adding the ground beef to the pan as it doesn't cook as well in the way indicated, less organic tomato paste as I used what I had on hand, organic unhomoginised yogurt (just a thin layer), and a salty Arabic cheese with onion seeds which is delicious. We ate this with corn free ketchup and a fresh salad.

    Pure comfort food. We loved this dish. The potatoes were a breeze to slice with my mandolin and I didn't bother to peel them, only scrubbed them really well. I used low-fat sour cream because I have a ton of it in the fridge and the cheddar was a combination of orange and white. Made for ZWT8
