This was given to me by a dear friend. I think it comes from a Moosewood cookbook.

this was really good, easy to make and made great leftovers. i used garam masala instead of the coriander, turmeric and cinnamon. turned out great.

This is a fantastic stew. I served it to my fiance and my father, who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and he asked for the recipe to take back with him. I did add a few cups of water and a bouillon cube to add a little more liquid, but otherwise, I stayed with the recipe. Thanks!

This recipe just didn't work for me. The combination of spices wasn't appealing at all.
