Add broth; simmer about 5 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are softened. Add tomatoes, chick peas and coconut milk; stir to combine.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Can't call it dinner without meat? No problem--top the stew with broiled shrimp or shredded deli rotisserie chicken.
  • Tip 2
    While jasmine or basmati are the obvious choices for rice to accompany this stew, plain white or brown rice will work well, too.
  • Tip 3
    Curry powder is a blend of several spices, and all are typically different. Try different blends until you find your favourite!
