I tried this recipe. A couple of observations; no mention of where the cloves or bay leaves go. No mention of masala; is that an addition to the recipe? I improvised as I went and this is absolutely delicious, but would love some clarification so I know I am doing it correctly.

Just finished eating - this was AMAZING! So easy to make and such great flavor. I tossed in a can of fire roasted dice tomatoes because the supermarket tomatoes this time of year are tasteless. The house smells amazing, and I'm sure this will be even better tomorrow. I served it with Rivka's ever popular Mujaddara with spiced yogurt - perfect with this dish!
