Hkatenkwan (groundnut stew)

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Chicken -- cut into pieces
1 Inch ginger
½ Onion
2 tablespoons Tomato paste
1 tablespoon Peanut oil
1 cup Onion -- well chopped
1 cup Tomatoes -- chopped
⅔ cup Peanut butter
2 teaspoons Salt
2 Hot chili peppers --
Crushed
1 medium Eggplant -- peeled and
Cubed
2 cups Okra

Boil chicken with ginger and the onion half, using about 2 cups water.

Meanwhile, in a separate large pot, fry tomato paste in the oil over low heat for about 5 minutes. Add to the paste the chopped onions and tomatoes, stirring occasionally until the onions are clear. Remove the partially-cooked chicken pieces and put them, along with about half the broth, in the large pot. Add the peanut butter, salt and peppers.

Cook for 5 minutes before stirring in the eggplant and okra. Continue cooking until the chicken and vegetables are tender. Add more broth as needed to maintain a thick, stewy consistency.
