These kosher recipes are found on the PUAH site. [  http://www.puahonline.org/home  ]
The organization helps families in many ways, families who are struggling with problems of infertility.
The recipes are interesting, many of which are adapted by using spelt, etc. One cooks's words and photo is below.

"Since I use spelt flour for all my baked goods (except the gluten-free ones), both sweet and savory, let me start with a word about spelt: While I see no reason to put the whole nation on a gluten-free diet (you will see throughout my latest cookbook that I make ample prevision for our gluten-free friends and offer gluten-free adaptations of countless dishes), I find that the idea of lowering gluten in our diet makes us not only explore the whole gamut of good grains but optimizes our nutrition: My tagline is “Enjoy spelt —less gluten, more protein, more fiber, delicious flavor.” I use 100% whole grain spelt, and get fabulous results for breads, cookies, cakes, pies, everything!"

Yowbarb Note -
Again, thanks for Member Etay Nir for posting about Recipes by Rachel. http://recipesbyrachel.com/
I hadn't yet posted the actual recipes from Rachel's Recipes (Jewish Iraqi food) so here is one:

BORROWED CLASSICS:
42.  Curry (From India, but an Iraqi variant)

[SEE RECIPE #3 IN PART 1 - SPICES AND CONDIMENTS]
43.Biriani (From India)
3 cups white, long grain basmati rice, washed and soaked for 1 hour
1 whole chicken, skinned and sectioned into 4 sections
10 whole cloves
12 whole cardamom pods (green cardamom is better than white)
3 sticks of cinnamon, broken into large pieces
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
1/3 teaspoon whole saffron, soaked for 2 hours in 1 cup water
1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste
¼ cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
Put oil in a thick walled pot, preferably non-stick. Sprinkle allspice over the oil, and then
scatter the cloves and cinnamon over the oil. Break open cardamom pods with the fingernails
or crush the pods slightly and scatter over the oil. Wash the chicken quarters
and lay the pieces, meat side down, on the bottom of the pot. Add ½ cup of water, set
on medium flame, and cover. When water evaporates, check to see if chicken is
cooked; if not, add a bit more water. When the chicken is well cooked, shut off flame
and let cool. Remove chicken from pot, taking care to scrape off into pot any spices
that have adhered to the chicken – all spices should remain in the pot. Add to the pot
the 1 cup of water in which the saffron has been soaking, together with the saffron. Refill
the same cup with water and add. Refill again and add, to make a total of three cups
water. (It is advisable to use the same cup as the saffron water to ensure that all the
saffron ends up in the pot.) Add the tomato paste and salt to the liquid in the pot, set on
medium flame, and cover. When liquid boils, drain rice well, so that no water remains in
the rice, and add rice to pot. Stir and cover. While rice is cooking, remove the chicken
meat from the bones and shred the chicken meat (not finely). When the liquid in the pot
evaporates, stir rice, lower flame to low, add shredded chicken to the pot, stir rice again
so that chicken is evenly distributed, and cover. Allow to cook for 30 minutes. Remove
to serving dish and serve.
