4. About 1½ hour into cooking add the rest of the potatoes and more water (if needed). Bring to a boil and cook until the meat is soft.

5. 5-10 minutes before the end add minced garlic, tomato paste, marjoram and dried whole chili (optional). Taste it and season more if required.

6. Serve warm with a few slices of bread or over rice.
