We love this stew for its amazing flavor and health benefits! Have you tried cooking with turmeric yet? Turmeric contains curcumin, which has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties - so it's definitely worth adding to your diet (either in cooking or supplement form).
We omitted the salt in this recipe (because we are not big fans of salt at our house) and added a dash of black pepper. Black pepper can actually enhance the absorption of turmeric in cooking - so sprinkle it on and enjoy!
