So comforting! When I first read this - it looked complicated but it was so easy and tasted amazing. Enjoyed by all who ate it. Thank you! - 13 Dec 2012


WOW! I used baby potatoes (skins on), half a dozen shallots was added and for an extra zing lemongrass and red chillies was mixed in, the cooking times are perfect, the end result was 4 empty dishes and a fussy son having 2nds :-) - 28 Nov 2015
