    Marlitt's Note:

    This a really flavorful stew. Got it from another site and have had it often. It is very versatile can really substitute any vegetables you have on hand. The taste is awesome. Great served over rice. My complements to Leah for this recipe.

      Tasty. I made this for the two of us and used one tiny chicken breast (1/3 #) so the dish would be less meat centric, but kept the other portions pretty much the same, and it worked well. I also used less salt and made it far less spicy in the pepper/red pepper/curry department (I make my own Madras Curry Powder, so it is really hot). The cilantro garnish really adds something to this, I wouldn't skip it. Really good flavors.

      Sorry but this wasn't really our taste. We didn't like it at all.

      This was definitely different, but in a pleasant way. However, I was surprised that, with the generous amount of spices and the peanut butter, it was not as bursting with flavor as I had expected. Next time, I think I will punch it up a bit more. Made for ZWT4.
