This was unusual in that it wasn't a heavy tomato base, which is what I like and am used to.However, I had 3 bowls and it was delicious, almost "rustic" and, as usual, tasted even better the next day. I served this with a loaf of Tuscan bread and spinach salad. Perfect!

This is real comfort food. Didn't have mace, never cooked with it before, so I improvised threw in turmeric, chilli powder and ginger as well the cumin. Also added green beans for a bit of colour. Will definitely cook again.

What a great stew! I didn't have mace and didn't know what it was. It wasn't hard to make and everyone loved it! Thanks for posting this recipe!
