    Very nice. I added some pepper and used spring onions instead of onion. I won't be using as much chilli powder as the original recipe as it blew my girlfriends head off! - 05 Mar 2010

    A nice simple sauce. Next time I'll add a few fresh peppers and mushrooms to give it a bit more texture. - 04 Sep 2009
