    Deerwoman's Note:

    A delicious and inexpensive side dish to go with meat or chicken and rice. Vegetable simmered in tomato-based homemade sauce. Vegetables can be anything that can be cut up and simmered, or any combination. Suggestions: potato, caulifower, eggplant, zucchini, green beans. We learned the basic cooking technique from Afghan friends and vary it to our mood.
