Bland, but easy to improve

I like the idea but the taste is quite bland - Have modified it by roasting the butternut squash beforehand (just cut in chunks, season with olive oil and a good amount of spices, chilli and salt and roast in hot oven until cooked)

Tasty when spiced up

Just made this tonight and am very happy with it. I tripled the ginger, doubled the cumin and tomato paste, added three cloves of garlic, two tsp smoked paprika, one tsp turmeric, a chicken boullion cube, and about a cup of coconut milk (the kind you drink from the refrigerator section, not the canned condensed stuff). Cooked it in a dutch oven on low heat for about 3.5 hours (adding the canned garbanzo beans about 2 hours in), and it's perfect, very flavorful.

You want to nail this stew, saute crushed garlic, 1 large red and 1 medium white chopped onions in 1 cooking spoon Olive oil for 3 to 5 mins; add the tomato paste or sauce, leave on the stove, medium heat and keep stirring to prevent burning or sticking for another 5 mins., then add your broth or stock, cover and allow to boil for 3 to 5 mins, then add other ingredients. I used curry and turmeric, a pinch or 2 of cummin instead of saffron. Forget the ginger and lime. Chicken stock cube and a little hot pepper and you're done. The whole house smells exotic. I also used chickpeas from can. I know, I am from north Africa.
