Recipe Notes

If you wish to add mushrooms perhaps or extra veggies the taste will not go bad. A little bit of heat goes a long way, so I do recommend a pinch of red chili flakes, or cayenne pepper in the serving bowl. Potato cooks faster than a carrot, so cut always carrots smaller than a potato to get it evenly cooked. Add Tofu instead of the chicken and use Vegetable stock and bouillon, if you are Vegetarian
