I think I was expecting something like Annacia's picture... but mine didn't turn out :( I halved the recipe since it was only DH and I for lunch, using two small shallots, a homemade curry powder recipe#174350, sea salt in place of salt, only 12oz of crabmeat instead of 16oz and one 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes. I cooked as directed but I had no juice in my stew - maybe I should have added water? We did enjoy the spiciness of the curry and crushed red pepper flakes. Made for ZWT4 Spice it up challenge.
