    Something else. I served it with salad made of shredded cabbage, carrot and lettuce and vinegar to help those who can't easily cope with the chilli...  -  05 Sep 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. Nice and spicy, but I cooked the broccoli too long as was mushy not crisp like I like it so I will make sure to toss the broccoli in at the last minute next time not few mins before expecting husband home as he was late Perfect with rice.  -  07 Sep 2010
