This stew is an example of one of the many possibilities that can be derived from the foregoing curry model. One of the advantages to this dish is that it’s self-contained, so there’s no need to prepare an accompanying starch (potatoes are simmered in the curry) or green vegetables, which are also cooked directly in the curry. The effect of including vegetables right in the curry is also an impressive sight.
