Great served with rice.

A nice addition is a garlic, paprika oil: In olive oil fry a crushed clove of garlic with about 2 teaspoons of paprika. Make a well in Charkiquan and pour a little in. Delicious!

This is a large quantity but to bulk it up even further you can add more veggies of your choice to the Varoma dish/tray, steam them and combine when serving. Just make sure you have enough liquid to account for the steaming.
