The Use of Tomato paste in this recipe makes for a faster prep. You can use 2- 3 Tbsp of my Stew base.
You can use freshly blended red bell peppers in that case you will need two large red bell peppers. You will need to cook it down a bit in the oil to get a thickened consistency before adding the meat stock and coconut milk.
You can make this dish vegetarian simply by swapping the chicken stock with vegetable stock. This dish can easily be made with tofu or any other vegetarian meat substitute.
