Sort of African, sort of not … you will love this hearty stew. Ideal served with the Fermented Rice and Lentil Dosas, (even though not strictly authentic) or the Coconut Quinoa. Just simple, filling weeknight fare. You could seriously serve it with rice, probably with South African Pap (I have yet to add a recipe for that on here) or even a naan would not offend! You do need something to mop up the gravy. Meatless Monday. YUM.
