This is a traditional arabic recipe, passed down from my Palestinian grandmother, to my mother, and then to me. I always loved this as a kid, and being a vegetarian dish, was something i was keen to do as my mother always said it was so simple and tasty. Its also very cheap to make, and really nutritious. The secret is not to skimp on the onion, and to let the onion cook slowly for a long time, till almost brown, but still soft.
Thank you for this recipe, my family loved it! We had it as a main dish & will surely be a family favourite, delish! - 03 Oct 2017
