Daube' means stew in french, we pronounce it 'Dob'. A chicken stew that looks like a curry but doesn't have your typical spices and strength of masala.
You can use different meats and root vegetables for this dish. It's full of flavour - garlic, tomatoes and plenty of thyme!
A lovely dish that is served with rice or bread but you can mix it up and have it with mash or put in with pasta! A perfect meal to warm you up on a cold rainy day 🤗
