  • Good
    I left out some of the chilis because I wasn't prepared to have a super hot dish. Unfortunately, not adding something extra made this dish just ok. I am going to try making jumbayla out of the left overs as my hubby didn't really care for it. It has the potential to be a great comfort food dish - 1/1/14
