    Sassy in da South's Note:

    Some might not feel this is spicy enough for their taste, so feel free to kick it up with crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, etc. Also, I have fixed this by adding chopped tomatoes, chopped potatoes, and sliced onion to the mix. This does well in the crockpot also if you like.

      The flavor in this dish was great, especially with the turmeric. I took your advice and added onions and used the crock pot (skipping the oil and flour). I also added carrots. The onions were super good in it, I would definitely recommend that. I subbed broth for the water and used half Meyer lemon juice to make my orange "sour", as one reviewer suggested. It was still sweet, but the balance worked well.

      This was ok, I would add a bit more spice to it. I put some potatoes and carrots in with it. Made for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs

      This was really good! I ran out of turmeric so I used Zaar substitute suggestion and used dry mustard and saffron. We rolled this up in tortillas with black beans, sour cream and avocado slices. YUM!
