    This is something I made to go with JanS Spice Mix. I have to mention Iain Hewiston and Claudia Roden who helped me make up this recipe as I took ideas from both of them as well.

      Loved it! I did use a good greek yogurt, because I had some which was really thick. But wouldn't change a thing. I did serve with a garlic couscous. OK, I cheated Boxed ... Near East had some on hand. Normally I would use a bigger couscous grain, but this was at home. Still, very very good. I saved it. I like it as a nice change but chicken stew or baked chicken. I also like all the flavors. I garnish with mint (don't yell at me), the only herb that didn't die in our cold snap (and I even took a pic) instant camera, my camera got sent back to Cannon, USA, so I don't have the pic yet. Very very nice dish. HAPPY CAMPER HERE!

      I have had this in my cookbook forever, but have never gotten around to making it. It's now going into my "I wish there were more than 5 stars" cookbook and will be made again and again. It's a wonderful balance of spicy, sweet and sour and is really finished of with a creamy greek yoghurt. I made a mistake and used a piece of kent pumpkin (much harder than butternut) which didn't cook in time. I continued to simmer it though and it was fantastic too. I subbed cinnamon powder for the stick and sprinkled chopped coriander leaves over the finished dish. We ate this with my cumin potatoes and a salad. I think the pumpkin and some chick peas simmered in this sauce would make a fabulous vegetarian dish minus the chicken and chicken stock.
