    Used different ingredients. Use garlic instead of ginger, didn't use any peppers, added some five spice mix.  -  23 Mar 2010


    Wonderful recipe, wonderful flavours. I did add a couple of chillis and a clove of garlic, just because I thought it would spice it up a little. Highly recommend it, however, with the above measurements, it would barely feed three people, let alone six!  -  03 Jan 2010
