    Very good. I might cut back on the butter since it was richer than I normally prefer. This really needs some bread on the side.

    I really enjoyed this. The texture was creamy on creamy which I don't usually like but it worked for this. Taking the chili butter all the way down to being browned adds a delicious nutty note. I had with charred pita for dipping. Will definitely make again.

    I made this while my mother was visiting and we both really enjoyed it. My only observation is that the tiny bit of raw garlic left me with garlic breath all day. But I will still plan to make this again. It's fast and simple too.

    A great and easy variation on this favorite.

    Fantastic, easy, and feels fancy. This will definitely go into rotation.

    Updated to say that I much prefer this dish when the butter is "burnt", meaning not that I burn the butter, but that it is left on the heat after adding the aleppo pepper, and a small amount of paprika, just until the paprika begins to brown. It must be removed from the heat quickly so that the pepper and the paprika do not truly burn. This small step adds a marvelous smokiness to the dish, which is offset perfectly by the tartness of the sumac and the creaminess of the yogurt and eggs. Do not skimp on sumac.

    Easy and delicious. This, or some variation of this, has been a family staple for quite some time now,

    This is really delicious and satisfying. I'm going to add it to my morning rotation!
