I loved this stew! The coconut milk makes it taste like a Thai curry, but the Brazilian flavors are there as well. Very nice-looking, and easy to make. I chopped up 3 tomatoes instead of using canned tomatoes- I'm sure it really made a difference and was worth the small amount of extra effort.

Absolutely delicious!! I used heavy cream and half the amount of sriracha sauce and it was perfect to me (I love spicy food). I will make it again and again.

Only one ingredient missing - but a VERY important one: "Dendê" Oil - also called Palm Oil.
