    Very Good
    This was very good! I used much less sugar than called for, but used pomegranate molasses instead of pomegranate paste-- not sure if that makes a difference. Tastes like Mom used to make it! Thanks for sharing. - 2/27/11

    You are welcome. I'm glad you liked it. I think you can modify evey dish to your taste and based on the available ingredient and sometimes the result is even better than the original one.
