This recipe is a real gem.
You start off on the stovetop, and finish in the oven - all in one pot! Few dishes + relatively little effort = for the win! This dish is impressive for the cook in that it comes together in a snap, and impressive to your guests as the flavours are comforting, intelligent and surprising.
Even though only comprised of the humblest of ingredients what comes from this combination is a sultry, creamy, spicy, dish that will imprint on you with its flavour and spiciness
This dish is based off of a recipe from "Homemade" by Yvette Van Boven but has been changed in terms of ingredients, and methods slightly as well. —thefood
