    Wow! Directly from Dennis this morning at the breakfast table. :) "Tell the recipe author this is amazing! Give her 5 stars. Give her more if you can." Need I say more? This is really da bomb, as it is so easy for a farmer-girl to make before going out to start my day. I appreciate it, because you get so many kuddos from the husband, and it had a delightful aroma, and called him to the table in less time then a fuzz sticking to a fuzzball. Thx!

    I scaled this back for 1 serve and the first time I made it I got as far as step 7 (put the lid on, put to the lowest heat level and set the time for 10 minutes and the results were a burnt mess), the second time I stirred the mix for about 5 minutes and then put the egg in and covered it but by the time the egg had cooked to my liking, white set and soft runny yolk, the sauce had started to catch but was edible. Thank you Dienia B as I did enjoy to some extent but would like to add a little heat to it in way of a chilli or tabasco, made for Went to Market.

    What a nice recipe. We enjoyed these with a topping of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I found this recipe on a video here: where as I thought there was an option of hot pepper which I think is a part of Yemeni cuisine. I used unrefined olive oil, red and orange bell pepper, no green, an extra egg, plus the rest of the ingredients (nothing to spicy). Made for FEBRUARY 2012 NA/ME TAG :)
    Perfect main dish for a light meal. To "Yemeni-ize" the recipe I added<br/>a small pinch of turmeric and ground cumin to the onions. Used red bell pepper.<br/>Garnished with fresh cilantro. Served with cucumber slices, grapefruit and apple slices, <br/>raw white cheddar cheese cubes, and a half slice of avocado. Reviewed for NA*ME tag game.
