      This is an easily prepared and satisfying vegetarian stew. I made the occasional minor change, based on fridge contents and personal preference ... didn't have much spinach so I added in some sliced cabbage, added in a large chopped carrot, omitted the raisins - oh, and I added a tablesp of Cape Malay curry powder, which is quite a gentle curry powder, to complement and accent the spices already used, hope you'll forgive me but I felt that for my taste, I just wanted that slightly hotter bite. Truly, minor changes, and we really did enjoy this very much, serving it with simple white steamed rice. I did halve the recipe since we were only two, and even so, had plenty left for lunch next day. Thanks for sharing, Syd, made for PRMR tag game.
