    I used Coconut Flour instead of Rice Flour as that was all I had. This dish was really nice, thanks for sharing it.  -  12 Feb 2017

    really, really good and very easy to prepare. I used ground cumin instead, adding after cooking the onions 5 minutes, and also added 8 0z. of yogurt at the end, cooking maybe 5 minutes.  -  09 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
