    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    This is a lovely, spicy stew from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking. She recommends using a pressure cooker, but I simmered it on the stovetop. Directions are included for both methods. I used all powdered forms of the spices rather than sticks, pods, etc. Peas are also good added to this.
