This recipe has a lot of Middle Eastern flair! I found this on the web. It was posted by a cook known as Joe1155. The first time I made this I fell in love with it! Its creamy and a little spicy! It goes perfectly with potatoes or rice and naan bread! I'm posting this recipe the way I made it and adding my photo.
