This Egyptian national dish was both tasty and healthy. The only issue I had was getting the onions crispy. After cooking 10 minutes, the onions were brown, but the pan was starting to burn so I went ahead and removed the onions. I will be making this again!

Excellent recipe! This is a hearty meal for cold winter days. I added french fried onions because I couldn't get the onions crispy enough. The addition was a good choice. I also added too much red pepper flakes so to counter we added greek yogurt and it was delicious!
