    Changed a few things but still stuck to the core of the recipe. I used 4 dried Nagas and around 8 Birds eye chillies. Halved the Chilli powder (2 tablespoons). Oh yes depite halving the chilli powder, half a lemon was nowhere near enough to make a paste. Used a whole lemon plus a few squirts of lemon juice. Brilliant taste, cracking heat (nose runner) but without the heat ruining the flavour or my mouth for the next six months. Can be made hotter or cooler. depends on you but for me it was pretty much bang on - 22 Jun 2012
