I have had this several times before and actually have a recipe from an egyptian friend but tried this one anyway. I used ground turkey instead of the lamb. If I make this recipe again, I would at a minimum, double the spices and maybe even triple the cumin. You couldnt even taste the spices in this version. I used regular brown rice and needed to cook it for 90 minutes to get the rice cooked. The zucchini did not get mushy. With more spices I would rate this as 4 star.
