Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Did You Know? Turmeric is an aromatic spice with a brilliant yellow colour and a pungent, slightly bitter flavour. Often used in Indian and Caribbean cooking, turmeric is commonly added to poultry, rice, seafood and egg dishes.
  • Tip 2
    Substitution: Kalamata olives garnish this Moroccon dish to add a slightly salty flavour. Greek or even ripe olives can be used if you can't get Kalamata olives.
  • Tip 3
    Serve With: Dress up this dish for entertaining when you serve it beside couscous with raisins and Middle Eastern flatbread.
