  5. Serve plain or over rice, with lemon wedges.
  6. I have not made this for a while but I do know that my family has been known to only use the seasonings according to taste, so please feel free to adjust as your taste buds see fit! Enjoy!
  7. We have also enjoyed this dish with a little sausage or lamb as well. Added when frying the onions.
