    TigerJo~'s Note:

    I found this in a newspaper years ago. It is tasty & quite fragrant. The curry will permeate any fabric nearby, so don't leave your laundry in the kitchen! If I don't have any shallot, I substitute about 3/4c onion, and I've used less or more celery and carrot depending on what I have on hand. We like the stew with crusty bread and a dollop of sour cream; while my neighbor prefers hers with rice.

      Made this a few weeks ago and plan on making it again this week. I WAY over peppered it. I added a few dried thai chiles and it didn't seem hot enough, so added some more hot chile powder. At some point I should have stopped. It was SO HOT, but we ate it anyway and it was delicious! I went to but the beer and could not remember what kind and I ended up with a belgian ale. It worked really well! I omitted the sugar and the cilantro. Can't wait to have it again. :)

      My husband made this for dinner tonight. We both really enjoyed it. I used your suggestions and made with Pyramid Apricot ale, topped with sour cream and cilantro and served with crusty bread. Delicious dish, we will make again.

      Very tasty! The stew bursts with flavor. I served it with old world flatbread which paired with it nicely. I'll try the rice next time. It wasn't too difficult to make. Took me about an hour and a half working quickly. Great as a starter or on its own.
