  1. I made this yesterday and it was amazing! My husband says he could eat it every week and we had leftovers for lunch which were even tastier!

  2. I have been following your cooking for last six years and your motherly approach reminds me of my ma every time.God bless u.

  3. I just made this recipe and converted it for an electric pressure cooker. Besides cutting back a tad on the water, I also had to cube the potatoes, because of course, they went in raw, not cooked. Worked like a charm, and very tasty.

    Can you suggest a second dish to complement this one that I could serve along side it and the rice?
