Budget-Friendly Main Dish for an International Potluck?

Q: My friends and I want to host a community dinner for some international friends at the local university. I’m supposed to provide an ethnic main dish but have no idea what to make! I have a limited budget and limited time to cook. I would also love to incorporate as much seasonal New England produce as possible. Any ideas?

Editor: Scott, I think a curry would be an inexpensive option that would be easy to load up with seasonal produce. This recipe is a reader favorite (and can be made on the stove if you don’t have a slow-cooker):

Readers, do you have any suggestions for inexpensive international main dishes that incorporate fall vegetables?
