"Thanks for this recipe it's very delicious, full of flavour and simple to make. However, it is VERY spicy! I recommend halving or quartering the amounts for the chilli powder and cumin and pepper and for those who want flavour and not spice, try tumeric and paprika in place of the aforementioned spices. perhapd with a little bit of ginger and a TSP of honey? I whipped up some dumplings and added to the stew (the recipe needed an extra cup of boiling water as the dumplings do soak up a lot of liquid. This stew together with the dumplings easily fed my family of four (all boys)."
