Mauritian Potato La Daube | Herby Potato Stew

This recipe is another traditional tomato, chilli and herby Mauritian dish you will find cooked in the homes of many Mauritians.
Daube is a classic Provencal stew with beef braised in wine, vegetables, garlic and Herb De Provence, traditionally cooked in a daubiere.
French settlers left a few classics and over time it has been adapted to be made with chicken, lamb, potato,  cauliflower and egg and is served with rice or roti instead of mash and vegetables.
