    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I strongly suggest to make this a day in advance as the flavors will intensify greatly, the dried chili flakes are only optional you may omit if desired or adjust to suit heat level -- please do not omit the currents and cinnamon stick they add to the flavor of this stew :)
