A delicious spicy dinner that is great during cold weather and is as easy to prepare as most soups.

Wow, this was fabulous. I used a tin of tomatoes rather than whole tomatoes & added a little extra tomato paste. I hate okra, so used zucchini instead. Also added red & green pepper (half each). Served over jasmine rice. A definite keeper - thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
