Personal Notes:
My mother's original recipe came from a General's wife who "adopted" her as a young 1950s Airforce wife. Her family was stationed in India. The original recipe took two days to make. Boiling chicken, making stock, etc. It stunk up the house for days!

Mother served it in a "monkey-wood" lazy-susan--which I still have, but haven't used in decades. For those who aren't accustomed, a lazy susan is a large turning base with several separate bowls or compartments that hold different ingredients. It allows people to pick what they want to have with their meal.

This was a special occasion dinner.

Side Note: when I was in 4th grade (1973?) I invited my best friend, Rex Tootel who lived behind our house to join us for this dish. After dinner, my mother asked him how he liked it.. He said, "It's not the worst thing I've ever eaten". That became a family traditional saying when mother would try out a new recipe on the family. I still use that line today.
