Absolute comfort food! Really yummy. It also makes lots of sauce & was wonderful over rice & veg. I also used 1/2 chilli powder due to younger family and it was nicely warm for our tastes. Great recipe! This is the last of 3 made for PAC 2011

Delicious! I was trying to cut back the recipe a little, but ended up just making the whole thing. So my bf and I have been eating it all week. But, hey, we sure don't mind. I didn't know what kind of onion or potato to use, so I just kept it common. I used small red onions and regular Russett, but I think you could get away with a smaller potatoes too. Serving 6 - so this makes a lot. Very tasty, thank you! Chnang na! heeehee
