    The tamarind and the oranges are just the right flavor for the beans and sweet potatoes. I too made a batch and ate it for three days never tiring of it. A great dish for Lent.

    This was a fun dish to make and better to eat. I sort of "cheat" and use frozen sweet potato patties. Once the patties are thawed, they are easier to cut than raw sweet potatoes.

    I am quickly becoming a hard core fan of Bal Arneson. :
    This one was a delight to eat and cook. I made a huge batch and ate it through the week reheated. It tasted fresh and balanced every time. The stew can be eaten alone or with rice and it tastes perfectly spiced both ways. The fresh roasted coriander and the addition of oranges makes this a surprisingly light stew compared to the heavier texture and feel of traditional Indian Rajma/Chhole dishes.
