A really tasty dish the whole family devoured. I added some salt base on previous reviews at the beginning and a little more at the end. I also put cashews in st the end and served with rice and naan bread. A family hit!

I used this recipe today and although it was a little oily it turned out really good. I will admit though, I had to substitute some of the ingredients as I didnt have some of them on hand. I also added some fish sauce as I felt it needed it. Personal preference really. Thanks for sharing

This is a really nice dish, 6 hours was perfect for me, I think it needs some salt or fish sauce to be added as well as it was lacking that salty taste, but I think thats personal preference. I will make this again with the extra salt or fish sauce and some chopped roasted peanuts.
