Love, love, love this dish! I omitted the carrots and added extra cumin and paprika. Instead of chicken broth, I used plain water. To finish the dish off, I sauteed half an onion in a little oil, added cumin seeds and red chili pepper flakes, and added this oil mixture to the stew. Perfection :)

This was an awesome recipe! I also added smoked paprika and one vegetable bouillon cube (because I didn't have any broth) which really kicked up the flavor. If you add the cube, you don't really need any salt!

This is flavorful and yummy and hearty. Like an earlier person said, I added more cumin :)
