I made this recipe yesterday. As written, I think it would have been really plain. I tripled all the spices (except the cayenne--I doubled that) I used ground cumin instead of cumin seeds (1 tsp all together) and I didn't have black mustard seeds but used regular mustard seeds instead. I also didn't have cardamom so I used chinese five spice. I used 6 skinless chicken drumsticks, 2 pints of tomatoes I canned last summer plus a 15 oz can of tomato sauce. I used half a quart bag of frozen swiss chard (squeezed all the water out) that I had frozen from the garden last year and diced 3 potatoes. I put all of this in the crock pot and cooked on low for 8 hrs. I then deboned the chicken and added it back to the sauce and added 2 cups of greek yogurt. It was still pretty bland, However, as it sat and cooled a little the flavors really started to pop! Had a little later before bed and it was really good! This is one of those recipes that get better as it sits. Will make this again with the changes I made but will make it in advance. Would be excellent as one of my cook for a month meals and frozen for use later!
