Thanks for positing this recipe. It looks good. I make a similar dish but the recipe I make uses tumeric where this one uses cardamom. I am going to try it with the cardamom and see how it changes the dish. This would be good also if right before serving you add a tablespoon of lemon juice and 2 or 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro.
