    Really superb. Made this with big flat mushrooms, cut up quite chunky - to suit chicken in 1" cubes. Really, REALLY superb.  -  29 Jun 2013


    Simple to make and lovely to eat. Any particular region of Southern Asian this meal is from?  -  04 Jul 2014


    Very nice dish and goes very well with rice, the chicken however is slightly to dry. The only thing I added extra was salt.  -  25 Nov 2016
