I followed this recipe pretty closely - and I was pleased with the result. I wouldn't change anything, and I certainly would not omit the raisins. Even my partner who does not like raisins, said they made the dish. I had thighs and drumsticks, so I used those instead of whole legs. Took off their skin and tossed them in the brown sugar. Quickly fried in the oil on all side before putting them in the baking dish. I used peanut oil (groundnut oil) because I didn't have olive oil. I think the can of tomato paste I had was just under 6oz - didn't have any other paste, so I only used that. I had a package of golden raisins, so I used those (probably not a full cup). I have a milder chili powder, so I used 2 Tablespoons of that. Didn't feel like going out to pick fresh parsley late last night - I used about a teaspoon of the dried parsley instead. I've read at least a couple reviews saying they didn't enjoy the recipe and they burned the garlic because there was too much going on. I line everything up before I begin cooking the garlic/onions - that way I can move quickly and add things right away. Also, make sure your oil isn't so hot it instantly burns the garlic. Hope that helps - the recipe is worth a try.
