    1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and garlic, cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent.
    2. Pour in tomatoes, kabuli chole and water; season with degi mirch, chilli flakes, salt, and pepper.
    3. Stir in carrots and potatoes, then place chicken thighs skin-side up on top of the vegetables.
    4. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until the chicken is tender, about 25 minutes.
    5. Now, either cook it for 15 more minutes on the stove or bake. If baking, preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    6. Remove chicken from the stew and set aside. Stir in the sausage slices, then pour the stew into a baking dish. Place the chicken thighs on top, skin-side up.
    7. Bake in preheated oven until the stew has thickened and the chicken skin is crispy, about 15 minutes.

    This stew was so good; however I think that if it was served with rice it would taste even better. If you don't like spicy food, then you may want to cut back on the red pepper flakes.  -  13 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    What a treat.. Im a new cook but knew enough to use Chicken Broth instead of water. I also added Cayenne Pepper along with the Flakes and used Polish Kielbasa instead of the sausage in the recipe. This is an amazing dish full of flavor (dont know how other reviewers didnt get the kick.. maybe it was my Cayenne pepper addition) For me it was spicy and the vegetables were nice and firm and not soggy. Cant wait for the leftovers!  -  04 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
