    1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until the onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, garam masala, curry powder and salt into the onion and garlic; cook together until fragrant, about 1 minute.
    2. Add the potatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato puree and sultanas to the saucepan. Pour enough water over the mixture to cover; bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
    3. Add the chickpeas and kale to the saucepan; simmer until the kale wilts, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the coriander over the stew and immediately remove the saucepan from the heat.

    Nice little recipe for a tasty evening vegie meal.  -  18 Jul 2012


    This requires more cooking time for the flavours to become friends with each other; and also for the kale to cook and the chick peas to soften a little.  -  28 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A++++ This recipe is AMAZING!!! I do agree with one of the other reviewer's, this recipe does require more cooking time. Especially for the potatoes to get soft. I did change 2 things. I used fire-roasted tomatoes instead of regular diced tomatoes. I couldn't find garam masala, I used Shaan Chana Masala from the Indian Store and I think it worked out fine. I paired this recipe with rice. I will definitely make this over and over!!!  -  09 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
