    i had a very long and tiring day before i tried this recipe. The cooking process was so exciting! The aroma from the spices was just heavenly! I usually cook to relax, but this has taken that to an all new level. By the time I took a bite out of it, I was just so refreshed! that's the word for it: Refreshing!  -  02 Feb 2010
