    Something else. I love this recipe! But I replaced the chillies with 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder, used a whole onion and a whole green pepper, added a stick of celery and a clove of garlic and two nests of noodles! I'd also like to add some chicken and sweetcorn :D  -  01 Dec 2009

    Altered ingredient amounts. this recipe is so easy. I had been looking for a good peanut sauce since getting hooked on it in West Africa. This one really hit the spot. I like to eat this as a sauce over rice instead of as a soup. So I use less stock and more of everything else. I also use vegetable stock and organic peanut butter (instead of the super sweet/salty kind). Highly recommend it.  -  24 Jul 2008
