I loved it! Based on other reviews, I cut the spices in half and it was perfect, but I don't like anything too spicy. I had fresh squash and just put it in with the potatoes. I also added some garlic to the onions because I like garlic :-) I also added 2/3 cup quinoa for added protein and nutrition. I'd say this is a new top favorite of mine, especially as I am trying to limit my meat consumption for health reasons. Read More

To counteract the "mushiness" complained of by a previous reviewer, I simmered the potatoes and cauliflower together for about 20 minutes. Then I added the squash and garbanzo beans and simmered for 10 minutes. This decreased the cooking time by almost half to prevent the veggies from becoming mushy. However, the stew was far too spicy, to the point hubby and I weren't able to eat more than a few bites. (If served over rice like an Indian entree, this amount of spice might be acceptable.) Also, the texture of the squash seemed incompatible with the other ingredients and didn't seem to belong. Recipe sounded delicious but needs some big adjustments. Read More

This was a huge hit at a party I had in the fall and when I asked my boyfriend what he wanted me to make for Valentine's Day dinner this is what he requested! Don't make the potato pieces too small or they break up - I like to have the texture of the potatoes so I'll remember to make them a little bigger next time. Also start with a potato masher on the garbanzo beans - it will speed things up and then you can use a fork on the ones the masher didn't get. The stew is quite spicy but my crowd seems to like it that way - serving over rice would probably help if you don't like this much spice. Read More

Thoroughly enjoyable and extremely easy. I ate it over whole wheat couscous with a few raisins sprinkled on top. I'm curious to see what some coriander and cumin might do to the recipe for next time--it really is JUST curry. But it's a great start! Read More

This was REALLy good. Next time I think I will add some raisins and sliced almonds in the last step. Just to add a little sweetness to it. Read More

This is a really delicious way to use up fresh farm produce. I cut back on the potatoes and added extra summer squash (because I had a lot). I also cut up a half of a fresh cayenne pepper instead of using the dried. The only change I would make is to decrease the amount of liquid a bit (by about a cup). By the time it thickened up nicely with that amount of liquid the vegetables were a bit too soft. Read More

I substituted mushrooms for cauliflower and added shrimp closer to the end. Also added a splash of milk and honey to cut down on the spicy (because spicy it was!). Not sure it needed the shrimp but the stew was delicious over rice. Read More

I really liked this recipe. After reading some of the reviews I tried mixing and matching some of the ingredients others had used so....I also substituted mushrooms lightly sautéed in butter, for the cauliflower and instead of squash, I used a big yam cut into big pieces and I used a vegetable broth to simmer the potatoes and chick peas. I also cut back on the curry and the cayenne pepper by about half and added one large clove of garlic that I chopped and sautéed in butter then mixed in to the final pot. I also mashed the chick peas slightly before adding them to the potatoes. It was a delicious and hearty meal. My first foray into vegetarian fare which honours one of my New Year's resolutions to transition to vegetarianism. Read More
