Bhutanese cuisine is simple beyond conception. This maroo boasts of a soul-nourishing broth, seasoned judiciously with leeks, garlic, red onions, ginger and green chillies. I’ve also added the healthful Bhutanese red rice into the stew, making it light yet satisfying. This stew is easily one of my favourite creations!
