This a vegetarian version of Tema Tang Sha, as it is prepared at the Lhasa Moon Tibetan Restaurant, located in San Francisco. This is a flexible recipe. For the original meaty version, just add strips of beef stir-fried.

Excellent!! I cut the potatoes too big - they need to be the size of mcdonald's fries, not my local ones... but easy & very good... we liked the plates clean,
