I got this recipe from a Country Singer down south. It's best to make lots as it tends to dissapear fast. Instead of the Rice Vermicelli, you can just spoon it over cooked rice.

- 6 garlic cloves (chopped)
- 6 tablespoons ground ginger
- 6 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons salt

- 2 (24 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with juice
- 1 (24 ounce) container plain yogurt
- 6 tablespoons cilantro
- 1 (10 ounce) package rice vermicelli (broken up)
- Melt the Butter in a large pot over medium/high heat.

Made this for dinner tonight. Was a big hit with my picky-eater husband. I scaled back on the red pepper as I wasn't sure how spicy it would be- next time, I'll add a bit more. Served it over Jasmine Rice. Made more than enough for the two of us, so I'm hoping it freees well!
