    Can substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock. The recipe suggests using this book's recipe for "Double chicken stock". See recipe for a variation.

    There was something about this recipe that just called out to me, so despite needing to use up kale (not Swiss chard, spinach, malabar spinach, or nettles as the recipe recommended), I decided to just go for it. It's a very simple preparation. (I cooked it as written other than the kale, using normal raising, and less cayenne). Most of the way through cooking, I started to get a bit concerned - the kale took quite a while to get tender and the flavor of the dish seemed really dull and flat when I tasted for tenderness, too. But once the dish was all mixed together, the acid, sweetness, and salt added a ton of flavor, and it was really greater than the sum of its parts. I would love to try this again with the correct greens next time. Glad to add it to my recipe collection.

    I made 1/2 the recipe, because I only bought 1/2 pound Swiss chard (1 bunch at my American grocery). Used regular raisins, because they are less expensive than golden raisins. My garam masala (from a local spice shop) overwhelmed the other flavors; next time I would reduce by 30%.
