Okay, there are a TON of ingredients in this, but it's very simple, and very good (I think anyway) - I like to serve this over rice! **instead of whole tomatoes, chopping them - I just use crushed tomatoes.

Everything looks good, but too much clove. Try cutting it in half or use a dash. Wholly Clove!!
