    Sounds great and I'm anxious to make it, just that the way you use the chilli is not mentioned, whether it's used whole, or in the case it's chopped, or cut into small pieces do you include the seeds for this recipe or not?  -  23 Aug 2010


    Delicious and addictive. Used 20% less oil as an experiment, which was fine. Now can't resist sneaking into the cupboard and eating it by the teaspoon..  -  11 Jun 2012


    Reduced ingredient quantities to make one jar to see how it tastes and it is pretty good (and hot). Can't wait to have it with some Indian savouries and bread. Will make bigger batch next time to give to friends to try and will also try with various other vegetables.  -  01 Jun 2010
