Okey dokey. I'll make amends with this Indian "peasant" dish... Be warned,
though. This is from an article about "ugly" foodstuff that looks
wretched but tastes great.

Don't take the list of ingredients and amounts too seriously, although the
potatoes and cauliflower are essential. But the main idea with Sub-Jee is
to use what vegetables you have or truly love. And play with the seasonings
a bit to strike a balance between fire and flavor.

In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and
saute until they release their juices and begin to brown. Stir in
cauliflower, potatoes, onion, celery, jalapeno, cilantro, cumin, curry,
garlic, salt, coriander, cayenne, cinnamon and broth.

Cover the pot and braise the mixture over medium heat for about 20 to 30
minutes, or until the vegetables are very tender.

To serve, heat the flour tortillas one at a time in a dry skillet until
they are soft and pliable, turning once. Sprinkle with a little of the
grated cheese and keep the tortilla in the pan until the cheese begins to
melt. Have each diner spoon some of the vegetable mixture down the center
of a tortilla, then top with diced fresh tomatoes and a dollop of sour
cream. To eat, roll the tortilla around the filling, burrito fashion.

Note: When preparing fresh chilies, wear rubber gloves for protection
against oils that later can cause burning sensation on skin.
