I hope the author doesn’t find this recipe. I changed a bunch from the original. Partly because I don’t have many of the ingredients in their original form, and I wanted to make it work for us. There was a topping I just opted out of entirely because it involved raw onion which gives K headaches. If you are at all interested in Middle Eastern cuisine, I would recommend this cookbook. It had some really interesting and tasty-sounding recipes. And maybe you could make this the way it was intended! I was just looking for a weeknight meal, and this worked for me.
