“This recipe for a Clay Cooker was given to me by my friend Beauchamp more than 20 years ago. It is a great Winter time meal. The ingredients scared me for at least ten years, but when I did make it, it was a hit with the whole family. This is my favorite recipe to make in the clay cooker. I have used 2 tablespoons of red chili chutney for the pepper paste. I am revising the time and the order of ingredients to make the recipe easier to follow.

After numerous meals, we decided to have a dinner party around this recipe...”
